we have a big olive tree in the front yard. we didn't really do much about it last year, but this year we decided to make use of them. and so we have been collecting and started the process of making olives. we're experimenting a bit, trying different ways of preparing them. with lemons, garlic, chili peppers etc. if they end up good, and you're on my christmas gift list, you better prepare yourself: there will be jars of olives under the tree this year.
now if you think i'm all garden and kitchen these days, you're absolutely wrong. in fact, these moments of olive picking and gardening in general are few, and so is the time in front of the computer. at least when it comes to blogging and blog reading.
it will probably continue for a while, the minimal blogging and absolute minimal commenting, but this is life right now around here. it makes me a bit sad, but on the other hand, things are happening, and the time i have to myself is very limited. and so i am off, to the garden. we built a new chicken coop and is making a vegetable garden where the old one stood. the soil should be quite good there.
enjoy your weekend
