It’s a beautiful time of year, the warmth of summer is with us already and life on the grove is abundant. It is also a time of a few nerves for all olive growers as the critical flowering season begins. Lasting just a handful of days this moment can forecast a bumper harvest or none at all. As professional as we can be, we are still subject (as we should be) to the whims of nature. We hope for light dry pollinating breezes and fear a heavy hail storm that can end a years work in half a minute.
The forecast is good, long may it stay that way!
