I want the heatwave back!!!

    Recommended Posts

    Call me a whinging pom but now that the heatwave has broken I want it back again!! The temperature has dropped to the mid 20's today and I feel positively chilly! I've moaned for England for the last two weeks about how it's too bloody hot to sleep at night but I'm dreading the thought of winter again! There's just no pleasing some people...:arghh:

    I know, I know. Some of us are just never happy! I'm not entirely sure but I think the daytime temperatures were consistantly over 35 degrees for the last two weeks or so. You have to bear in mind that it's officially autumn here as well so I don't think we were really prepared for the heat. Night times were really sticky, driving home after a concert last night at about midnight it was still 30 degrees! Oh well, back to the bedsocks!;)

    We are not big enough to go fully commercial I'm afraid - it's just a paying hobby.

     

    We do have our own label and bottle a fair bit but it's for our other business - gift baskets:)

     

    We also sell to Brian's olive shop in McLaren Vale - look out for Onkaparinga oil - or Giardini Grove.

    We sell a fair bit privately to friends as well,some buy 20 litres and divide between their friends and neighbours.I like this way as it is really appreciated.A very good chef loves buying it from us.

    Sorry we don't pickle olives.I had a go once and it was a disaster:nah:

     

    I highly recommend Brian's Olives from MaclLaren Vale - naturally processed and some of the best I've ever tasted!

    I have noticed how quickly you feel the change in weather but I thought it was because it had been so positively HOT lately. If the skies are blue I don't mind mid 20's.

    Libby

     

     

    Sorry - missed this with all the "kerfuffle" at Tyke Towers.

     

    The oil is $10 a litre.

     

    Extra,extra virgin with very low acids,naturally grown,good grass and pepper notes with fruit finish.

     

     

    I've sold into a couple of olive /continental food stores i the central market before now.They were retailing our oil at $16.95 for half a litre!
