Almost Harvest Time

As you have heard us say over and over again, the drought has affected everything on the farm.  Our olive harvest has taken place the first week in April for the last two years, but this year it will be about the middle of April.  We are the last olive planation in our area to harvest, our olives just are not ready to be picked any earlier.

The trees look good and are full of olives.

We drove into Montevideo and purchased more olive crates in anticipation of a larger harvest than last year.

We purchased more harvest baskets since last year we only had two, and they were a big hit with our crew.

Now I just have to get the menu settled and pre prep all the meals I can in order to daily feed the harvest crew a hearty lunch.
