2012 – We have three olive trees – have had them for about ten years and they have barely produced any fruit. Mostly the reason that our trees bear so poorly so that we do not water things, I plant but I am not good at regular maintenance items like watering. This year we have begun well, going for a morning walk around the yard, feeding the chooks, watering the areas of the vegetable bed that still don’t have a watering system connected and as part of this routine the fruit trees are being well watered. Add to that the potatoes that have been planted in the same bed and get watered and fed, we should get olives this year!!
