Wordless Wednesday: Olive Dreams

17 June, 2010
Congratulations on winning your own olive tree adoption in our Nudo/Ready Made competition. Enjoy the fruits of your tree! Love, Nudo

my adoption certificate comes in the mail, my grove is Rosalio, my olive, a leccino, my tree is 39 years old

my 3 flavored olive oils arrived in mid-November

I think I've getting an idea...

parking lot olive tree ... who wants those olives?

not all the olives ripen at same time

I already have a link to how to make these beauties, and it's Christmastime, when I make stuff...

will she, or won't she?

To read more about olive trees and the harvesting of olives: Olive Trees for the Sacramento Valley

Besides the eating of good olives - yum! - my biggest delight is including olive trees in landscapes with other mediterranean or native plants. So much better than a boring lawn, don't you think?

    What a fabulous prize, Jeanie! I just cruised around Nudo's website and blog. Both wonderful and worth more visits! Next year for Christmas adoptable olive trees would make unusual and very welcome gifts, if their are any left, that is.
