Since moving to Metung I have developed an absolute love of olives, particularly those from our local producer. I have posted before about buying olives at the Metung market and on one occasion we purchased an olive tree from the stall holder. The tree is of the species that produces these particular olives, Ligurian.
To solve the issue with the birds we have covered the tree with orchard netting.
Hopefully some of the olives will get the chance to ripen but in the meantime I will continue to buy Sunny Bank Olives.
