Olive Picking at The Walnut Tree

With the prospect of a good olive harvest, we bought a mechanical olive picker and new much larger sheets to catch the olives.  We also bought natural fibre sacks – in the hope that the picked olives lasted better once off the trees.  Picking time was certainly shortened but the yield was not as good as we had hoped.

Still …. 55 litres of oil will last us two years, so we are not complaining.

Green, grassy, spicy …  and delicious!
