Odd photo, huh? Well, this is hoping to indicate what happened to our olive harvest this year. It was pretty much decimated by a huge windstorm that blew through on the first of the month. Winds that were clocking in at 80 miles-per-hour knocked off about half of our olives, which is what you are seeing on the ground in this odd little photo. This was going to be the first year we harvested our olives to make Trueheart Olive Oil. The harvest is scheduled for late this month.
The good news? Our grapes are harvested, crushed, and are busy fermenting.
Looking at these beautiful big olives makes me feel as if I ama a funeral.
Maybe they will make good fertilizer for next season. Mom
