The growth in The Olive Grove has been huge! In the last post you can barely make out the trees they were so small, now they are starting to take off.
Above: The Alders on one side of the entrance to the Olive Grove from the lake. There is a corresponding stand of Alders on the other side (off the photo to the right). We are going to let their canopies grow together and trim out the bottom to form an Alder tunnel through from the lake to the grove.
Below: A vista through the grove to a temporary focal point - a rustic wooden bench.
We have even got our first crop of olives. I am sure they will bear thicker, and larger olives in years to come.
