This past weekend we harvested the olives from the trees in the garden and took them to an oil-mill to be pressed into oil. We only have 16 trees in our yard so it took my husband and a friend just one day to climb into the trees, shake them and pull on the branches to gather the olives. They spread large green nets (see photo above) on the ground below the tree to catch the olives as they fell.
