I’ve been looking at packaging for our olive oil and one decision is which bottles to use. There are lots of lovely bottles around but our options this year are pretty limited, as many are only available by the pallet and we’re looking at smaller volumes than this. We’re keen to use other Australian products where we can, partly to support other Aussie industries, and partly to try and keep the overall food miles down...

Roasted root vegetable medley with EVOO. This was great with (BBQ’d) sausages, but would be good with lots of other things. It’s got kale in it too, so there’s your carbs and greens all in one dish.

I like things that can be measured. So a few weeks ago when we had to prune a couple of olive trees in the grove with damaged branches we took the olives off and I measured the length of a representative sample of fruit. Just because. The sample size was 50. (They were small and it was a bit fiddly, and I was getting bored by that point.) I was delighted to see that they formed this lovely curve when plotted on a graph, and thought I’d share it! This is the first graph I’ve drawn in years…
