    Time will tell.
    thanks again.
    I understood that olives are a bi-annual crop. This, independently from the season, would explain your light crop.

    An interesting paper to read discussing the management & pruning of olive trees:

    Yes olives give a good crop every 2 years the year is average crop wise. This year my tree (Kalamata) went berserk not only because its its good year but with all the rain we had the olives were huge.

    Since mid-April I've processed about 15kg of Olives.
    I've given about 1/3rd away and we've eaten few kgs but now the back fridge is stuffed with olives that should keep us going for quite a few months.

    So, I have now turned my dehydrator to something else, Eggplant.

    It's dead easy, slice thinly, steam for 4 minutes and into dehydrator on 50-60C for 4-6 hours.
    Thats the steamer on the RHS and the dehydrator on the left.
    One large eggplant fills the 5 trays in the dehydrator

    End product looks like potato chips.
    Without any added slat they even taste like lightly salted potato chips
    If completely dry and stored in a sealed airtight container they are supposed to last for at least 12 months.
    You can of course now soak them in yummy flavoured oil but we've decided to keep them dry like this as they make good healthy snacks
    I will try some flavoured oil versions next time ROUND

    The down side is by the time they dehydrate out you don't have much left.
    And I've already eaten about 1/3rd of the proceeds.
