Today we dug and weeded around the fruit trees in the second orchard. Then we gave them a really good water. We had two olive trees planted a few years ago and they have been growing but not thriving. Or so we thought. Over the winter weeds had grown up around them and we thought that we had lost them. But after removing the weeds and digging an area around them, we saw that they were in fact thriving and they even had small blossoms on them. I will get some horse poo from a friend and put that around them as the soil is very sandy and hopefully we will get some olives soon.
