Donkeys enjoy olive harvest

While Matilde, Rubí, Aitana and Morris tuck into the juicy olive leaves from the trimmed trees after the olive harvest, it is not such good news for the harvest itself. All over Spain the olive harvest is the worst in years. The price will be going up. Production is severely down and the least economically well off parts of Spain are suffering a new blow to their wellbeing. There is an olive oil glut throughout Europe. See the video.

Oh well, the news is always bad. Let’s stop watching the news and just eat the olive trees….

About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.
