Olive Picking Season

Olives alternate good and bad years.  This is a good year for our olive tree.  I can't take credit.  It was planted by the yishuv, Shiloh, before we chose to build here.  There were three trees.  One didn't survive the building, being that it was where the front stoop is now.  The most impressive and valuable is the olive tree.

Every once in a while people ask if they can pick olives.  My husband and I have been saying yes.  Sometimes we ask them to give us a sample of whatever they make with our olives.  The person pictured here picking was a guest of one of our neighbors.  I don't even know who he is.

G-d gave these olives to be used for food.
