It is not a very good year for green olives, but still we already have been picking for a month and going well into october… we started 10 then 6, 4, 2 and now one is still picking, rough times in the olive grove.

The apples this year have been the largest and tastiest of the last 3 years, probably because of the the heavy mulching we did early back in spring. So with such sweet apples we could only think of apple cider and so this time we took special care, using the right yeast and containers and so we hope for the best, something that we ll know in 3 months more or less.

Besides the above, this generous month we picked a lot of figs, walnuts, peaches and now pomegranates.
