Desert Olives


One thing that has promoted Jeremy to “super dad” status beyond all question is the fact that he homeschools the boys on Wednesdays because he wants to.  While we didn’t help at all with the harvest this year (the local Bedouin workers who come do a wonderful job and have a long history here), we do love watching it all happen.  This year, the trees were especially productive and it may be due to limited water of all things.  Jeremy, on his super-Dad day, took the boys to the local olive press along with the olive harvesters to watch the pressing process and enjoy the “zayt u zaatar” (olive oil and herb mix) they love so much.  We do have a special love for this desert fruit and all we can do with it…
