The hard way

April 26, 2011

If you think we’ve been quiet lately it’s because we’ve been  working so hard in the grove. One of the consequences of refusing to use herbicides to control weeds, combined with a rainy summer, is that the grass has grown with great gusto. Normally our offset mulcher behind the tractor would cope with it, but the tractor knocks the olives off the trees if we get too close at the moment. So, to prepare the grove for the upcoming harvest we are hand mowing  or whipper-snipping around each tree, all 1200 of them!!
