Telegaph Hill Olive Harvest

Actual vs Plan

It worked! this years plan of growing large olives worked!  We pruned to reduce the crop load so the remaining olives grew bigger.

We kept a close eye on them and the weather, and when time came for picking, we kept all the large olives to use for our table olives, and the smaller olives all went for oil.

We got a ratio of 34 - 60% large olives. Previous years the ratio has been as low as 15%.

Now I'll just order a repeat for next year.....
