Olive picking

Dec 6th is a National Holiday in Spain, Dia de la Constitución, some of the shops are open in the morning, but it’s a good day free of distractions to pick the olives. We put a net down and dropped the dark globes of valuable gorgeousness onto the ground and collected them up afterwards, removing any stalks and leaves. It was a lovely sunny day and we completed our tree in a day, we weighed the olives at over 50kg, not bad for one tree. We will take them to the oil factory as soon as possible.
