This is the first harvest since planting the olive trees in 2009. The trees are very small, but some of them were loaded with olives, so we though we better harvest them. The harvester is pretty primitive and has NO cab, exposing the driver to the elements. So we thought we’d add a nice Coke umbrella on top to shade the driver. Unfortunately a gust of wind came along and blew the umbrella off the top.
Once again our lovely kids and my Dad Tom, came to help. I should also mention my Mum, Marcia for her efforts manning the kitchen and preparing lots of lovely food for the harvest crew.
