Harvest


Harvest in Ayvalik, Turkey





Where a picture is worth a thousand words.





a bag of picked olives beside bamboo beating sticks




Trying my hand with a small 'rake'




the ladies helping from the bottom



the boys from the top



the electric 'rakes'



the details



removing some of the leafy debris




busy ladies all




meanwhile
high gear in Bitritto, Italy



olives rain down



are collected










go on to the processing plant



Placing the ground clothes..note the clamp-like end to the pole which grasps and shakes a young tree.



fresh half ripe olives


and on Crete
generator powered 'rakes' and a family operation in full swing




everyone helps
