The fruit has now set on all the olive trees. The flower has finished and the small olives are growing. They start green as seen here and then ripen to a deep dark reddish black come harvest time in late October/November.

These olives are for oil only and should not be eaten as they are extremely bitter.

So now we largely wait for harvest time. I have yet to finish cutting the grass but hope to get that done in the next couple of weeks.
