LIFE ON AN ITALIAN OLIVE GROVE
Return to Casa Margherita homepage
Friday, June 14, 2013
At last the rains have subsided and we have bountiful sunshine which in turn means the olives are flowering. The flower buds have turned from a mid green colour to a yellowy green and are now opening.
The trees produce a significant amount of the flower and so the pollen coats everything in a fine yellow dust.
Now we wait to see how much fruit sets and then a longer wait until the harvest which is normally in late October early November.
