olive harvest almost done........

Harvesting olives is hard work, everything has to be done by hand. We have 2 pneumatic cambs, which goes quicker, but also  damich the olive trees a little.
2 man arranging the  nets for collecting the olives, 2 man using the pneumatic  cambs, en I collecting the olives from the nets to put into the remolque ( trailer). At the end of the day we have with 5 man 1300 kg of olives, puff a lot of work. And the olives are small this year, otherwise we can have double the kg!
Maybe next year when we are lucky.
