We have been picking olives for 9 weeks almost solidly. Today the last load went to Soldebre our Co-operative in Tortosa and the grand total of olives picked was 7256 kilos, about 30 cubic metres.  Lots. I am so proud of our trees.  And of course our helpers, without whom it would not have been possible. A very, very big thank you goes out to every body who helped us,  I will try to remember you all.
