olive_council_report:

As of August, a total of 218 trees produced fruit, some only having a few olives, but many were highly productive, especially the Arbequina. No pruning, fertilizer or herbicide was applied to grove this year, though they do plan to apply ash from their burn pile next season. A drip irrigation system is installed but was only utilized from February-May when there was not sufficient rainfall. The trees received 90 minutes of water once a week during these months in a quarter zone rotation. A hurricane last year did knock a number of trees completely over on the outer row on the North side of the grow. The trees were replanted and recovered well, still having vigorous new growth, many with healthy fruit production. Plastic sheets have been laid down to catch falling olives and they plan to harvest in September.

grove_notes:

Growers are interested in having FOC assistance with harvest, pruning/oil production methods, and guidelines for applying ash a form of fertilizer.
