Berba maslina / Olives Harvest Time

Olives Harvest Time in Croatia

Ne mogu odoliti, a da ne podijelim ove fotografije sa vama.

I can't resist to show you these photos.



Prošli vikend smo brali masline.

Last weekend we 've spent picking up olives.



Ovaj  stari maslinik pripada mojoj mami,
a masline je sadio dida moje babe,
dakle moj šukundjed, tko zna koje godine....

This old olives belong to my mother,
olives were planted by my grandmother's grandfather,
my greatgreatgrandfather that is, who knows how many years ago...




Tu ima i nekih mladih maslinica koje će rod dati tek za koju godinu.

There are some young olive trees, 
that are supposed to have yield in few years.



Ove godine su masline stvarno dobro rodile.

This year's yield was really really great.



Mi nastojimo ne brati masline dok su sve zelene,
odnosno čekamo dok većina sazori.

We are tending not to pick them up while they are all green, 
we are waiting for most of them to mature.




Sjećam se, kad sam bila mala,
dida nas je vodio u branje još kasnije, krajem studenog.
A onda je znalo biti burno. I hladno.

I remember, when I was a child,
my grandpa used to take us picking up olives much later on, 
by the end of November,
It was windy by then. And cold.



Volim branje u ovo doba godine,
nije zima, boravak u polju je prava uživancija.

I love this time of the year,
it is no cold yet, and is quite a pleasure to spend days in fields.



Vrijeme nas je poslužilo ove godine.

The weather served us right this year.



Kao i  većini obitelji,
svi idemo u branje.

Like in most of the families,
we all go into fields.





Kad je ekipa dobra,
pravi je gušt brati :)

When the team is right,
it is a day well spent :)



Pošto nemamo maslina više nego što nam treba za vlastite potrebe,
beremo ručno.

Since we are small farmers, and grow olives for our personal use only,
we pick them up manually.



Ispod masline prostremo tendu,
mislim da većina ljudi tako bere, bar u našim krajevima.
Kad se određena maslina pobere,
tenda se skupi i sav se sadržaj (i masline i lišće) prebaci u vreće.

We usually lay the canvas underneath the olive tree,
that's how the most of the people around here does it.
When a certain tree is finished,
we  gather the canvas and drop all there is (and olives and leaves) into sacks.



Rukom beremo masline i puštamo da padaju na tlo,
odnosno na ceradu.

We gather olives by hand and let them fall on the ground,
on the canvas, that is.



Ovaj suncobran je "patentirani"  :)  izum moga ujca,
njega razapnemo ispod sredine stabla,
gdje pod nije dobro prekriven ceradom.

This parasol is my uncle's " patented"  :)  invention ,
we open it beneath the middle of the tree,
where the ground is not well covered by the canvas.



Dok se maslina bere,
usput se i režu stare garne.

While the olive tree is being gathered,
at the sam time, some old branches are being cut off.



Kad je stablo previsoko,
koristimo se skalama /ljestvama.
Ipak, nastojimo da stabla ne budu previsoka.

We tend not to let olive trees to grow really high.
But, when certain tree gets higher,
we use ladder.



Netko se više voli koristiti ovakvim grabljicama nego prstima.
nemam ništa protiv ovog pomagala,
samo što skida i dosta lišća.

Somebody uses this little rakes beter then fingers.
I don't mind this kind of tool,
just it gatheres a lot of leaves, too.



Savršena grana.

A perfect branch.



Savršeni plodovi Majke Prirode.

Perfect gifts of Mother Nature.



Naravno, najbolji dio dana u polju je ručak.
Moje udarnice uživaju u kratkoj pauzi.

Of course, the best part of a day spent in fields is lunch time.
My hard-working girls enjoying short break.



Vrijeme je bilo toliko toplo,
da se i sama priroda zbunila.
Ovaj vrisak (vrijesak) je ponovno procvjetao.

The wather was that much warm, even the nature itself was confused.
This Winter savory has bloomed once again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Kad se dođe kući,
masline se iskreću iz vreća i odvajaju se od lišća.

Back home,
olives get out of sacks and need to be separated from the leaves.



Obično se koristi ovakva "moderna" naprava;
drveni okvir sa letvicama između kojih je razmak dovoljan da propadne lišće,
ali ne i same masline.
Ali, tu i tamo propadne i koja maslinica :)

It is common to use this "modern" gadget;
wooden framework and slats with gaps in 
between them wide enough for leaves to get through, but not the olives.
But, some of the olives get through now and then :)



Ovoliko je maslina imala mama ove godine.
Nije loše. Uopće.

Dok se čeka na preradu,
masline se stave u posude sa morem ili sa običnom vodom u koju se stavi morska sol.
Tako se masline neće pokvariti.

This is how much olives my Mom had this year.
Not bad. Not bad at all.

Untill the time of the further processing,
olives are held in sea water or drinking water with the addition of sea salt,
so the olives don't spoil.



Priroda me svaki put iznova iznenadi.
Ove masline su zaista veličanstven prizor, zar nije tako?

Nature amaze me over and over.
These olives are quite a magnificent scene, don't you think?

  1. baš veličanstveno i hvala puno na opisu, nisam nikad bila na moru niti vidjela kako se beru masline a kamoli da mogu da sazore, da budu tamnije boje, ja sam mislila da one uvijek budu zelene..ima eto netko tko nezna..ja pomislila-grožđe :O ooo lol
    Lijep dan vas poslužio baš super fotke :D

  2. ništa zato, ja ne znam baš puno o kontinentalnim kulturama.
    i ja volim jesti zelene masline, odgorčene, premda su i ove tamnije ukusne.
    a najbolje je maslinovo ulje :)

  3. Ja za bruku ništa o načinu berbe nisam znala...a volim da uzmem po kanticu maslinovog ulja od tate...On samo kaže meni i bratu: hoće li iko osim mene ikad uć u masline da ih vidi...:)))))
    Baš mi se sviđa vaša berba..udarnice su zaslužile odmor;)

    1. berba je vesela kad je ovako toplo vrijeme. kad zapuše bura, nikom nije do smijeha :)
      zato smo se malo požurili.
      ako ti trebaju instrukcije, samo se javi, dajem poduku besplatnu na licu mjesta, obučiti ću te da samostalno bereš tatin maslinik i još bonus, kako rezati stablo i prepoznati određene bolesti masline. biti ćeš dipl. struč. berač masline. ;P

  4. Ovo izgleda fantastično, obožavam masline! Stvarno si nam lepo dočarala čitavu atmosferu oko branja. Naravno, kad je dobro društvo na okupu, nikakav posao nije težak. Svaka čast za devojčurke, vidi se da bez nih ništa ne bi bilo obavljeno kako treba :)

    1. ma kakvi, bez njih ništa! djeca dobro dođu u takvim momentima:"dodaj mi pilu, di su skale, otrči po vreće, di mi je kanta, ne mogu naći škare.." i slično :D

  6. So many olives, I can't believe how many you've gathered! And the olive trees, are they really, really that old?! We only have nut trees planted by my great grand father, in the country side :)

    1. Yes, they are really really really that old if not older.
      Olive tree is indestructible, it rejuvenates itself every year. Even if it gets into a fire, next year new offshoots grow from the root. And we are thankful for that.

  8. E super su ti slike! Malo me nostalgija uhvatila za berbom maslina, ima već barem 8 godina da ih nisam brala. Ove godine su me obaveze zadržale, a imala sam namjeru otići da pomognem, moji imaju veliki maslinik i puuuno maslina. Ali slažem se, najbolji dio je pauza za ručak! A dobro društvo je obavezno!

    1. što nije tako? meni je uvijek poseban gušt bio ručak, bilo što da se spremi, jede se sa posebnim tekom, čak i djeca.

  9. Oduševljena sam, toliko je lepote na ovim fotografijama.
    Posebno me raduje što sam videla kako to izgleda u berbi, jer masline kupujem, ulje kupujem. Nisam imala priliku da vidim kako izgleda maslinjak.
    Hvala ti za ovaj doživljaj.

  12. Vrlo rado bih ih brala u tako dobrom društvu.

  13. I found this to be such a beautiful and fascinating post! (You know how interested in olives I am!) Your pictures are so nice. So is the difference between green olives and black ones just a matter of ripeness?

    OdgovoriIzbriši
  14. It looks like so much work but also like a lot of fun if, like you said, the team is right ;) The photos of the countryside and the olive trees are so beautiful! We have some close by at a local park, but I don't think they can be eaten... they are beautiful to look at though!

    1. of course, you can not eat olives directly from the tree :) you would be very dissapointed into fresh olives' taste - all olives you buy in a jar are factory proccesed to achive the taste you are familiar with. but, all fresh olives give most wonderful and tasteful olive oil.

  15. You've all had a lot of work, but I'm sure it's very fulfilling to see such wonderful results. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party this week!

  16. Ana I am really surprised that you have olive trees in your country. I thought we only had them in the southern countries. This is really wonderful. We do exactly the same thing with the yellow comb and the metal sorter. Ana I was so happy to see this. We are doing it in December this year. I have chosen this post to feature this week at Sweet Inspiration. Come on by tomorrow and get your button, and congratulations.

    1. Thanks, Mary, see you there :)
      As far as I know, all regions with Mediterran climate grows olives. And I guess the harvesting is pretty much the same 😊 all around.

  17. Oh Ana, your beautiful photos brought back so many lovely memories of picking olives in the Western Cape. Lol and the rake and umbrella are genius. I must remember that when we go picking again. Thank you for a stunning share.

  18. Ana, I can just imagine this being a lot of hard work but also a lot of fun!! The yield of olives looks mighty plentiful for sure. I'm so glad you and your family have this wonderful experience to enjoy together!!

  19. This was a fascinating read. I adore olives and knew they grew on trees, but had no idea the trees could be as old as yours are. Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed reading your post.
