      Today we are taking 42 bags of olive/leaves mix to the processor to make some olive oil. The family usually uses the first batch harvested for its own consumption. This is the organic batch. The process starts by dumping the bags into collectors to go up the conveyors to a vacuum to extract leaves. As they fall, they are washed and after they water is separated, they go to the grinder. After being ...

      Today we starting harvesting. The day of picking the olive off the ground are over. Today they use nets spread out over the area and the use a olive tree beater.

You need a generator to power the beaters and they hit the branches, constantly making noise and shredding the tree as olives are thrown ...

It sounds like we will start harvesting in a few ...

      Today I went to the museum and looked at the findings from the Minoans at Knossos and Phaestos. Great tour with all kinds of amazing pieces. They were a head of their time in craftsmanship. They were the leaders in shipping and controlled the seas. There were several palaces on Crete and survived for about 3,000 years, before the volcanic eruption of Santorini whipped out the whole island around 1370 ...

      ... far from the cotton plantations, but I kept walking. After a bit, I was more interested, as they were becoming more prevalent and on different kinds of stalk. After closer inspection, these buds of white, which were literally hundreds to a plant, were snails. It was remarkable to see that many, so far from heavy precipitation. Thousands of them could be seen in a few ...
