Olives !!!!!!!

Tonight's post is a request of help from me to you. This beautiful property here in Daylesford has lots of trees and plants I will eventually be able to get food from. Me being a city girl, I know I am going to have to be a bit of googling to find out the what, when and where of what I have. Now as I don't eat olives this produce is an interesting challenge. I have three olive trees and the fruit have now turned dark so I am thinking it it time to harvest and actually do something with them. I am intending on marinating them (don't know how!!) and giving them to my family, who do eat them. That's where I need your help - what do I do with these Olives ??????
My Three Olive Trees

Are these ready to be picked????
