olive tree pruned
Guerrier is a nearby wine and oil producer. They have just won a third prize in the “Premio nazionale l’oro d’Italia 2012”. Don’t know if our olive oil is as good but we were pleased an surprised last year to get 15 litres from our trees. As it had been a very hot summer we were not expecting much after the bumper harvest the year before and so we were pleasantly surprised. In the coming year we will have very little oil as we have had to prune the trees severely after the snow. The tree outside the back door looks, at the moment, like a tree left on a first world war battlefield. However, after a few years it will be large and lovely again and in reality the snow forced us to do what we should have done a couple of years ago.
