PERSONAL, UNDILUTED VIEWS FROM TOM WINNIFRITH

Photo article - so why can't you eat your olives at the Greek Hovel?

Please share this article with your comrades in revolutionary capitalism

- Tom Winnifrith

 

About six of the trees have much bigger olives. These are black (not green, purple, brown and black) and are often almost an inch long. The oil is not good for drinking, instead these olives are cured in brine and then eaten.

I have suggested that picking these olives and curing them might be her job but she has other ideas. When we are installed at the hovel on a more permanent basis this will be another challenge for me.
