Wow, this website is incredible!  I’ve been an organic gardener for years and am finding this website extremely impressive with the vast array of well done videos and information you guys cover.  Thanks for having such a stellar project!

Wonderful video!  SO SO COOL that you offer the fermenting crock, just a wonderful crock.  I am wondering if I can use this crock for lye processing of green olives?  And, hope you also do a video on lye treating of olives.  I am waiting for your Nocellara del Belice olive trees to be in stock, so I can order a couple of them.

Patty, do you already have one of the german style fermenting crocks? These crocks are not designed to process olives in lye but rather for fermentation. But that being said, you could use the crock because it is a ceramic with a coating, but I would not use the weights since they are not coated.

I love your videos, I really use them to do something I am trying to grow and when I see one like this one for olives it just excites me more. I have five trees that I have been thinking about removing because I didn’t know what to do with the olives. My family eats olives almost every meal and you guys saved the trees and I get to progress the olives just because you make things so easy with these video, I am going to use my cabbage crock for the process.  As always thank you for your time in teaching

Lisa, glad you saved your olive trees and are able to use the wonderful fruit.
