The Farm – October 2016

olivetreesWe should be starting to think about harvesting the olives now, but unfortunately this year once again we are not going to be able to harvest. Work commitments just will not allow. We have tried a number of alternatives to try and get someone to do it for us, but to no avail, so I think this year they are going to have to go to waste, let’s hope we can get better organised next year.

grapevinesOn the up side we were able to sort the irrigation for the vines, and to re-establish 3 more of the runs with new posts and wires.  At the moment there is only a couple of vines in each run from the old stock, but the plan is that in the spring we can plant some new vines stock, hopefully now we have the irrigation in place they have a better chance of survival.
