Look at the mushrooms I got…. They’re huge. I put a cup alongside them to show how big the stalks are by comparison  and my olives grew huge this year year but not a big crop…. Disappointing really… You cannot tell the size of the olives but a friend of mine said she has never seen olives that big before. I think many went missing from either mice of rats stealing them.

YUMMMMM....Are those portebellas?  I like
cooking them on the grill with olive oil, salt & pepper
and using them as if they were a hamburger patty.
So good.  I love grilling veggies and making veggie subs.

Ok, its nearly been a week. What stage I am up to is soaking the olives in plain water for 7 days, changing the water everyday. I cut them according to the instructions I got from the net and I have tried before, and it works a charm.

Soon I will be doing the same thing with salty water except I will be changing the water maybe every five days… then after 2 weeks, I can eat them.. Note how they’re changing colour already as the bitterness in the skin leeches out… these are very ripe olives… on the tree there are two green ones waiting to change colour, which is a bit of a **** off really… I mean, who wants to go to the trouble of pickling two olives…

This time last year, my crop filled the whole containers…. This year, I only have the row floating on top… I also used plastic lids to weight the olives down… it works perfectly…

The salty water I will use is roughly 60-70 grams of salt to the size of that full container…these are ready for eating really quickly because they’re over-ripe…YUM. I am just going to make olive sandwiches… and no one else is going to get one….I hope…lol …My nephew said he wants to try some… I made him climb to the top of the tree to get them…lol



This was last years crop size…. About 4 times what I got this year ….

No way.... when the brining process is complete, I eat them every day until they're all eaten.. I might have up to twelve a day... so that lot will be gone in two days tops.. maybe three if I am lucky.

This is fake picture in as much as I used msn paint to colour the other walls... all my walls are white but I want to extend the whole dark blue over whole feature wall... all the rest beside me and behind me will remain white.... It might appear gloomy having such a dark colour but in real time, it works.

there is also a fake fridge on the left and a fake microwave over in the recess... my real microwave is too big for that section but I am buying another one

When its all done and jazzed up, I'll take a nicer picture of the finished product.

We're part way through.... the hub has two coats.... the other walls have the sealer and 1 coat.... and the fridge area outside the picture only has a coat of sealer...

what a nightmare... the kitchen was clean earlier today...now it has **** from pillar to post.... outside of your view of course but it 10 pm...knock off time.

I finished painting the kitchen... I made a chop of it too... I have microwave that doesn't fit in the recess..it's half an inch to wide so I keep glasses in there and I am going to buy a smaller one for the spot and I want a new fridge so I chopped my fridge wider to cover a boom closet. I will show you when I load it to photobucket... also, I left off a very heavy mosaic. I want the walls to be 100% dry before I put it back up...(it got a third coating)... I might change all the artwork.... when I had nothing in my house, just my art, it was good and it set it all off.... now I have **** everywhere and my place just looks busy.


I painted it dark blue... its very dramatic. all the rest of house is white inside,.... I built it 11 yrs ago and its never been painted inside.... except the hub was painted a shitty sponge effect. I got tired of it...now I have the paint bug... I need to do a room at a time... it doesn't even have sealer on the walls yet....
