…and now, by popular demand, a complete tutorial of how to pick olives, Casa Tyr style!
We have been told that it’s very unusual for women to help in the campo, so it initially caused a stir when I helped pick our olives. And OK, maybe it’s a bit unusual to also have two boxer dogs who also are keen to help. That’s what makes the whole process so….unique, shall we say!
The first part of the picking is over. We had hoped to pick all our olives before Christmas, but weather, as usual, upset all our good plans. So we picked enough for a very large cold press – almost a (US) ton of olives! After the New Year, we go after the remaining olives, if the wind leaves us enough!
