How many in a kilo???
seaboe, is estimate another word for 'lots'? ;-)
AbigailM - these ones are around a gram each. The ones I've been pickling are between 4-6 grams.
Dave, in this case, yes. It's also another word for I-don't-know-exactly-how-many.Lisa S. in Seattle
Actually on larger picking projects sampling provides a pretty good answer.
I like this way of doing science, if there is a margin of error on one sample, take a population of 30000. Having the maths of statistical ensembles on the cogs must help take the mind off picking. I conclude therefore, that I am glad that Olives have no thorns.
sorry I asked !
