A few days ago my parents were collecting olives in our gardens.
When we moved in this house, in the Anno Domini 1992, my father planted 3 olive trees.
A couple of years ago he collected olives and made his first bottle of olive oil. One bottle. Just one.
Apparently our mini-oliveto is improving. This year they were able to collect something like 10 kg of olives.
Olives are harvested by shaking the tree or the brenches and them collecting them from the ground…
