Making olives

Next to Olive's house, out the back, is a big olive tree. It was heavy with fruit this year and the ladder was pulled out and the first lot picked the weekend we said goodbye to Barney. Or maybe that was when we picked the last lot? I can't remember now, because goodness knows a lot has happened in those few months. 

Some cured in salt, some soaked in brine and while the salt ones are too salty, they still go well with wine.
