A few months ago, olives trees were crawling under the weight of their fruit. We didn't get organized early enough to pick some for pressing (next year's goal!), but we did pick a lot for pickling: 17Kg! That's a lot of jars. They fill pretty much a whole cupboard. I can't imagine what would happen if there was an earthquake... our cupboards are old and far from quake proof!
maybe I should have a giveaway of a jar of olives!
