Recent weather has been a bit of a paradox. Late October and early November storms delayed the olive ripening on Paros. But now the last several days have been mostly sunny with night time thunder showers.
The olive harvesting is moving apace and Karin went swimming with our friend Bruce to set a new personal record for late season dips in the sea. Some people, of course, swim year around; my last entry into the refreshing water was October 30.
Quality Award in the medium fruitiness olive oil category, was won by a producer based in the town of Plomari on the eastern Aegean island of Lesvos. We know this town as the producer of our favourite ouzo. Now we will have to try their olive oil as well. This contest had 73 entrants from all the major olive oil producing countries.
