Ante,

I showed the pictures of your little girl to my wife. She says it's a very cute girl. And a very funny foto where she is cooking !

I didn't eaven have the slightest idea how an olive looked when it wasn't in a glass yar in the supermarket.

The olives that I buy in the supermarket are not round. Is that because they loose some of the original oil/moisture? or is that another type of olive.

This is what I know as an olive.

That is table type of olives. Some are grown for oil production and some only for consumation.
For example our sort of olives U canot prepare for food while are still green only whan the are fully ripe. And its also big diff in taste between green and black (salted) Olives.

Ashes, beware Soapy, they are very alkaline, more than 95% of all plants I've ever grown dies out at such concentration. 1kg of ashes can be mixed together with acidic soils, water, compost and this entire mixture would weigh up to 50kg. So you see the ratio.

Just don't give that to your bananas, or you will be unpleasantly surprised in the summer.

Ante, Olive plants are now very fashionable decoration in west and north Europe.
Prices for plant are quite high, for ex. here in Poland 30 -40 cm high plant costs 40 -90zł / 10€ - 22,5€
So if you have place for small nursery.....

Hahaha, we can allways figure something out
I did send some seedlings to our late friend Tog in Malezia and 4/6 did survive the trip and had growth after. Wish I can see them now.
So, as I always say, nothing is imposible !
