A photo collage to show you the results that our disastrous Olive Harvest left us with! Olive Harvest 2010 Che Disastro We were extremely lucky that our pathetic haul of probably around 45 kilos maximum went off to the mill with our neighbour’s harvest. They were only to pleased to help us out as we had no way near enough kilos required to have a pressing of our own this year.
Our neighbours trees are a few kilometres away from here and luckily for them their crop was not harmed in the same way as ours, despite a lot of olives already being on the ground from wind damage they still managed to pick what they considered to be a very successful crop, although the yield this year was lower than expected.
Just a few days ago they presented us with this five litre bottle of beautiful green olive oil our percentage share from our contribution. Fortunately having had a very successful harvest last year with plenty of oil to see us through until next year, this bottle will be treated as extra special and only used on special occasions.
We have of course had a traditional tasting and it is delicious with a peppery tang giving it tremendous flavour.
