      Off to the processor

      A travel blog entry by joshualyon on Dec 01, 2014

      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 ...

      Harvesting the Olive

      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. It's a long shaft with a rotating head that has several rubber sticks that beat the tree branches and knock the olive off. What I thought was a peaceful harvest, is anything but. 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 ...

      Accidents Happen

      A travel blog entry by tanya.lesiuk on Oct 10, 2014

      I'm not sure if I should call this accidents happen, my finest moment, or girl interrupted. As you all know I'm usually a very organized person but lately it's as if I've been brain dead. For example today I set our with no address or directions to my hotel; why? Well, why the hell not. Clearly any organizational system doesn't work in Greece so why should I even try. When you fail with your methods and systems just accept that maybe they don't have a place where ...

      Dave was very keen to visit the Lassithi
      Plateau and Niall had not been to see that part of Crete, so we decided to
      drive there and stay the night as it is quite a long way, and took considerably
      longer than the three hours driving that we estimated, even bowling along the
      Ethniki for ...
