This is good news for those, such as Andrew Bell ,who have volunteered to come to Greece as unpaid slave labourers on this year's olive harvest. My babies up at the Greek Hovel are looking good. It must have been the pruning I did a couple of months ago. As you can see below the olives are of a good size already and while the trees are not dripping with fruit, as they would in a great year, most trees have a good amount and some are dripping.

I am wandering among them pruning the odd one which I appear to have overlooked in May and which be covered in new sprouts as a result. On those which I did prune on my last visit there is just a bit of tidying up work to do on new sprouts that have emerged since then. Of course there could be another hailstorm, another act of God, to destroy the crop as there was in 2017. But as things stand I reckon that our team of volunteers should be able to pick well over a tonne of olives in December. Time to start training Gentlemen...
