Olive Harvest

Img_0211The last vineyard event of the year is typically our olive harvest.  The mission olive trees that line our vineyard roads were planted primarily as decoration, but they produce olives that are good both for oil production and for curing and eating.  We plan to do both this year.

Right now, it looks like we'll have about 1500 pounds of olive fruit... enough for about 60 gallons of oil.
