Olive Crazy: All About Olives and Olive Oil
Jun 102011

Oh my goodness, I finally got to a city with internet. Over a week ago, as I prepared to go on vacation for the summer with Mr. Olive Crazy and the young Olives, I checked cell phone and internet coverage for all the locations we would be visiting. I was proud of my advanced preparations, each location was covered, Olive Crazy would proceed uninterrupted, BUT NO.

For over a week I’ve had spotty cell coverage and no internet. Olive Crazy has suffered. To further add insult to injury I haven’t had a single olive, any olive oil, or spotted an olive tree the whole time. There was one spot of sunshine and here is some photographic evidence.

The Trustee's Garden in Savannah, Georgia

The Young Olives visit The Trustee's Garden location in Savannah, Georgia. The site of Georgia's first commercially grown olive trees.

Yes, The Trustee’s Garden in Savannah, Georgia was my bright spot in an oliveless existence. Even though the garden has long since vanished, I am comforted knowing that my state once successfully grew and benefited from the fruit of my favorite tree.

Now, with four guaranteed days of internet I am preparing myself and all of you for the uncertainty of the future as Olive Crazy turns her steering wheel west and travels across country to California and lots of olives. Ahhhhhh!

May the sun shine through your branches.
