Olive harvest

We harvested our olives yesterday - 21kg in total. We have around five large trees that produced olives and although that would not usually be enough to crush to make oil, we have been very kindly invited to add our olives to those from Francesco's father's harvest and in exchange, we'll receive some olive oil. So tomorrow, we will take them our olives, help them harvest theirs and sometime in the next weeks, receive a bottle of dark green, peppery, pure, Tuscan olive oil. Can't get much better than that!

Here are some pictures from the continued harvest this morning (now up to 23kg) - we missed some in the dark last night!

And what some of us did during the olive harvest:

And the harvest
