Our first crop of olives are changing colour. They are an oil variety (Frantoio), and I suspect we might need a whole lot more than this to press some olive oil (and an olive oil press). We have 5 trees that are 3 years old, and they have grown so quickly!
Maybe one day we can go from this...
to this?

How satisfying would it be to make soap from your own olive oil? I made this batch last week, and it is made with rose geranium and patchouli essential oils, and pink clay for marbled colour. Musky and feminine.

Gorgeous olives. That would be rather satisfying, wouldn't it!
