    Old Olive Trees in Pots

    Today I picked about 120 small olives from my two young trees, enough to fill a jam jar. I’m going to process them and hopefully they’ll be ready to eat by around Christmas.

    Man films a tree for a year.

    Järvzoo is further away from Stockholm than that. Around 400km or say 4-5 hours driving. The one I mentioned is about a 1,5 hours drive from Copenhagen airport.
