Tales of Tasmanian Adventures in Olive Oil

Share Your World – 2015 Week #8


Second week I’ve given this “Share Your World” challenge from Cee a go. Answers needing a bit more thought this week. Hmmm…

Your favorite blog post that you have written? (add link)

I think probably this one about how many of our Tasmanian picual olives it takes to make a litre of extra virgin olive oil, because it’s the best infographic I’ve done. I used Canva, which is a web based graphic design program. It’s an Australian company, quite new, which has grown pretty quickly. There are loads of templates for all sorts of print and web applications, and you can either edit them or make your own. It’s great fun, and free to use, unless you want to add any of the stock graphics which are $1 each. (You can upload and use your own photos for free.) My challenge here was to create the infographic using free elements only. Click here to read the full post!

Infographic - How much extra virgin olive oil do you get from a Tasmanian picual olive tree?

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? Why?

A party to catch up with friends! I’d have a BBQ. And music, and maybe some dancing. We (well my husband!) has been homebrewing for a while, so there’d be plenty of beer 🙂

If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be?

I would love to know the answer to “What date will our olives be ready to pick and press this year?” It’d be really helpful to know so I could plan around it! I love planning…

Where do you eat breakfast?

During the week, usually in the kitchen. At the weekend, usually outside. Love bacon and eggs on the BBQ as a weekend treat.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week two books I’d requested from the library came in – I’ve got “The One Straw Revolution” by Masanobu Fukuoka, and “Introduction to Permaculture” by Bill Mollison. And this week we’re off to Melbourne for a couple of days to go to a wedding – can’t wait!! Might even get some time to read those books while I’m away… 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.

  2. Great answers. I wish we could have breakfast on the BBQ. It’s currently under three feet of snow.
