Jack Frost came to town

In the middle of May, the first frosts started to grace our little trees until the suns' rays make it over the pine forest in the early mornings. They do need a cold snap for fruit set, they say, but there's still fruit on the trees! And the few olives that are there, are in no hurry to ripen, it seems. Maybe the trees really are just too small still to produce a worthwhile harvest? Or can things change considerably in the next couple of weeks?

J5 - about 2 and a half years old.

Another chilly J5.
