Olive Harvest

Right now my fingers are stained purple, and I have 4kg of kalamata olives soaking in my kitchen (thats about 1000 olives people).

Today we finally harvested our olives, and over the next couple of weeks we will soak them, place them in brine, preserve them and store them for future eating. Last years harvest was almost as big, but the quality of the olives this year is much better, and I am hoping that the final product will be better. Last years crop were a little hard and very bitter, this years crop are much plumper and juicier.

So hopefully in a few months time I can eat olives grown in my backyard. YUM.

Still here

Thought I should do a quick post, I have been participating in an scrapping challenge at to do 7 layouts in 7 days. I only managed 6, but plan to finish the 7th as soon as I have some good light to get the photo I need. Here is the final one for your viewing, and chuckling pleasure.

I mean good heavens Mum, how short is my school dress???
