I can't take all of them but I would like some. The first spare moment I'll have this week will be on Thursday. Would that suit? I'll need a lesson, having never picked olives before.

Anyone got a copy of Don Dunstan's Cook book?
He has a recipe for preserving olives in red wine in there that is quick, easy and delicious.

If anyone has a recipe can I have it? Looks like I'm going to have olives to preserve!

See you Thursday pm paradisi. Do you need anything from my garden?

Well I hope no one else wants any because despite saying I wouldn't take them all I stripped the tree bare with Paradisi's help. Being the good permie that he is there was also a passionfruit vine growing up it, so I got some passionfruit while I was up the ladder as well.
I can now let you all in on the secret - Paradisi's yard is the size of a postage stamp, but he still has crammed about 1000 useful plants (I got seeds of a peanut butter tree to bring home too), 3 happy chooks, and a guinea pig. There wasn't a partridge in a pear tree, but there was an apple tree with a grasshopper....
I'm just going to nip over to the recipes section and let you know what I'm doing with the olive bounty!
