Sage Garden Olives!

This morning we harvested olives!  There are 5 mature olive trees at Sage Garden.  It's late in the season, and most of the olives have dropped or are overripe, but a few remained, and that's all we need to cure our first trial batch.

I've never harvested or cured olives before, so even though this batch is small and potentially on the overripe side, the learning experience will be invaluable preparation for next year, when I predict we'll have a crop of well over 1,000 olives.

Here's our trial batch of 75 olives, washed, scored, and ready to cure.

  1. I would like to thank you for giving such fabulous information about olive tree. After reading the post, I am sure that you have such a good knowledge about trees. You can purchase Mature Olive Trees, at ancientolivetrees.
