My husband, Jacques and I arrive in France in the fall to pick olives and have them made into olive oil.  Our farm has about 700 trees and every year we invite friends to help us harvest our olives.  We started picking on Monday.  It rained this morning so we only got in a half day today.  dsc02710dsc02708dsc02752 dsc02749 dsc02746 dsc02742 dsc02729 dsc02724We take the olives to the press in the afternoon about 5 pm.  Here is the end result.img_1394 img_1402Actually ours looks a bit nicer when it is in a bottle or a can with the label.
