From what I remember of Manawatu weather (having spent 4 years at Massey) isn't that the norm? ;)
Good luck with the olive picking.... How long does it take for Olive trees to start producing?

:( TKP nope won't be up for field days :( :(
um picking is easy ... just takes time .... specially when you have over 1,100 trees
It"s slow going, and not good working daylight till dark in cold wet shitty weather :(
need 100kg of Olives per press , and they charge $1 per kg to press them
Olives weigh bugger all ... so takes lots to make 100kg

This 3 day weekend is the Leccino's , and by the looks of it the spannish Pequal's will have to be done to... thats about 400 trees total :(

:( and always ... weather turns to crap for Olive Picking ... so Manawatu people can expect 3 shitty weekends in a row :(
