Olive tree



The olive tree is at least 100 hundreds years old.It grows at the entrance to my house.It was there before the house was built and there is another one in the back yard.My younger neighbor asks every year to pick the olives and i allow, in return he gives me a small jar with canned olives.(I seldom eat them).He says that this year only my tree bears fruits,and all the others trees in the area are with a few olives, i wonder why.

  2. In Britain there has been a bit of a craze for having olive trees in pots outside restaurants, etc. I think many groves are being grubbed up for building plots in Spain etc, because most of the trees are quite mature. I feel very sorry for those poor olive trees in our climate.

  3. My tree has very small Olives. I'd like to process them, but I'm not sure if it's worth the bother. I would only have a very small amount.

  4. I've seen a very few television programs about processing olives for oil, and that is the end of my knowledge. I can believe the old trees are making way for progress, and that is a shame.

  6. That's a wonderful olive tree, Yael. It really looks old and full of character. Our trees only have olives every two years. The trees around us are full of big olives this year. We had snow in the winter and a lot of rain at the beginning of summer. The olives love snow so everyone was expecting a good harvest.

  10. Your olive tree is abound with character. If only it could tell a tale of its life! I buy olive oil from folk at the local market and they own an olive grove. I did not know they only fruited every 2nd year.

  12. Olive trees are history and you are lucky to have such a beautiful OLD one in your garden Yael!
    Thieves are stealing ancient olive trees from groves in Italy to sell around the world.

  16. When I was a kid in California, there were olive groves. But since then, they have all been cut down and houses built where they used to be. Glad your tree has survived.
