What do I win you ask? I am not sure, but it will be awesome! Plus you can have the satisfaction that I had to count every olive. So guess and share! 😂
Here’s a close up of one branch….so you can see how heavy a crop it is! 😳
Almost ready for harvest!
Olives love the sun! And we get a lot of sun here in Central California, so our olives are super happy. And big! (And still several weeks from harvest).
Do you know what else loves the sun? Solar panels! So we are getting some of those too. We want to offset a lot of our energy use, and solar is the way to go! We can’t wait to see these with the panels and up and running.
We did a little video with California Grown…
We just picked our first bin of organic late navels!
We started the transition to organic on part of our acreage three years ago. It seemed like it would be forever till we were certified. Three years of higher costs of cultivation, yet sales as conventional fruit. But here we are. Certified!
So look for Sunkist organic navels in the stores. They could be ours!
And they look, and taste, amazing! So good, don’t waste them making guac. Seriously. They are better than just guac. 🙂 Can you count how many there are?
Neither can I. I am not a good avocado harvester.
Look at that pink color already! And the juice!
We don’t pick them until we want to eat them. And these are great!
We put so much love into our farming, the fruit shows it. Literally sometimes.
It got a bit cold last night! The icicles look scary, but they are from the water we put on. The water tends to keep the temperature up so the fruit doesn’t freeze. Hopefully!
We hope everyone has a great year filled with joy, happiness, and good health.
