I have waited a year for this day. I have carefully pruned my tree, I have faithfully watered and protected it during the heatwave in August. Today I harvested my olives. What you see in the picture is not a sample of abundance. Before you is the entirety of the crop, all 15 of them. At this point I am not exactly sure what to do, or what went wrong…. So I guess this year I will be visiting the market in search of someone else’s crop to cure into eating olives.
