A Day At The Farm

Yesterday was a beautiful day to play a little catch up! When we had the field "ripped", earlier this year, we had most of the coyote brush hauled away. Now we are gradually raking up the last of it, and taking it to the green area, at the dump. You can see the new trees in the background. All are doing well.

We had some rain a few days ago, which has made it much easier for pulling weeds from around the newer trees. As the trees get larger, the canopy provides shade, which discourages the weeds. Eventually weeding around the trees will be a minor part of our labor! Won't that be nice!!!

We picked a few olives to check for taste and oil content. The olives varied in size and color.

It's important to taste the olives as we approach harvest. We also check the inside and outside color.
All this helps us determine when to harvest our crop.

Gotta scoot...new day, more to do, back soon.
