Measuring olives

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! FFx

I'm a British doctor who married an Aussie, moved to Tasmania, and bought an olive grove. Now making extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea. I'd love you to join my adventures in the beautiful setting of Southern Tasmania.

I'd love to know what you think! Tell me here :-)
