Hi all

Been away from the forum for a while as had quite a lot of work in the fields - harvest time...Anyway, I managed to grab the camera here and there and get some shots - here's an overview of the action.

That's the road to one of the orchards

And then there's the harvest proper. All done by hand, to keep the fruit intact as long as possible:

Can you eat ripe olives off the trees? Or do they have to be cured/brined first?

Great series
Thanks to all!

Well, you can bite one, but I doubt you'd bite the second: they have a very piquant and bitter taste. I do that in the summer when I am out of water to kill the thirst. Cured are much much better :)
