We have different varieties of olives growing in our yard. Some are called Nolca and are good fried. For a recipe take a look at my other blog. We have already harvested those. In late October/early November we'll harvest the olives that we'll press to make our own oil.
In this photo, my husband and oldest son are gathering another kind of olive that is treated in a saltwater and lime solution. That may sound strange, but I assure you the result is delicious! These olives are very large and green. Forgive me if I don't know the name of the variety, but we are really not farmers!
The photo is a bit dark, but it was a dark day. Quite a change from the perfect blue skies I showed you this summer!
