And don't get me started on the idle cows who refused to step in and
help when the chef went down with the lurgy, one of whom was the shirker
on the grape picking task and who won't pick an olive.
Surprising about the test of a single olive's fly strike and then
declaring the whole crop will be fine. We get a bulletin from Regional
Centre of Applied Meteorology which tells us when to water, when to
harvest and when the fly is likely to attack and hence when we need to
spray. We don't have many trees and they're all young so we can do the
spraying in a couple of hours, but it's a horrible job as you have to be
covered up and wear a gas mask as it's an organophosphate.
