Well, we ended with 33kg of olives (I picked into the dark last night, and then got up at 6 - still dark this morning) which we drove up to oil-pressing folks. They can't just mix them in with theirs as they're certified organic, so have to do either a seperate run or add in at the of their run before they do the 2 hour cleaning the press thing(ie. their olives are 'contaminating' ours, not the other way around). I think at normal 5 gram average olives we'd have for the same effort picked a couple of hundred kg. Some of these were really tiny - the size of a raisin. Still we did 64kg all together, so now we see what sort of oil return we get. A 1/4 of that belongs to Bill and Maria, so I hope it's enough!
Anyway, sore backs... and more green olives to process for pickling. I picked a kg of those too, just for experiment. Sometimes I wonder why I am so stupid.
