      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.

      ... were rewarded by a
      fine view from the top. At the top was a row of windmill bases, unfortunately
      no longer in use. We soon discovered that very few windmills remain at Lassithi,
      and fewer still are in working order. The plain used to be covered with them,
