Organic farm comprising of cherries, olives, avocados, citrus and stonefruit.
The season determines the work:
November and April: nets over trees;
January and July,: nets off
Harvesting: cherries in December and January, olives in April and May; Pruning trees is all year round while slashing the grass is in October, Nov. and March.
I am 6 years into building a home/house out of tree trunks and stone, so there is building and house construction being done (stone walls; window insertion and woodworking); landscaping (stone walls, paths, gardening and fencing)going on at various times of the year as well. LOTS TO DO!.....LOTS TO EXPERIENCE!
