      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 ...

They are taken to a hand sifter where most of the branches and some leaves are separated. The remaining olives and leaves mix, are put in 100 pound bags. We did 15 bags today, which is pretty good.

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.

There is a massive wall measuring 11 meters deep that surrounds the city from the Venetian time frame. It was a major port where galleys were harbored and repaired in massive stone covered ...
