Olives dropping
Just noticed today that some of my olives are dropping.  The fruit is full size but not mature yet.  Just wondering if anyone else has the same problem ?  The variety is Piqual.

Olive burning
Is it safe to burn freshly cut olive and almond wood or would it cause damage to the chimney flue or wood burning stove.
