A rakes progress

Harvest time beckons here at Casa Magherita and so we have been checking our nets, buying some more plastic crates for handling olives and of course finding our rakes. In older times we would have used a rake like this to strip the olives from the branches of the tree but we have made progress and so will be using a vividly coloured plastic one. Much less romantic I agree but it does do the job and doesn't rust.

  1. I wish we had one of those old rakes, mu husband loves old agricultural tools.
    We still pick all our olives with rakes, brightly coloured plastic of course.
    All the best for your harvest.
