Third day of Sage picking

10th of May 2017 First day Sage picking 2017
Trtar hill middle Dalmatia.
Altitude 450 m.

Third day – clear weather with high visibility, sunny, light wind that changes direction

The plant used nice weather to hurry up with flowering and accomplish her duty to propagate. The flower uses the smell to attract the bugs to pollinate the flowers and as an incentive the plant gives the bugs its nectar and flower powder (carbohydrates and protein) and bugs pollination produces a fruit with the seed that assures further propagation.

As visibility is perfect it is amazing to stand that high and see how nature can sculpture the terrain with river canyons, fields and plains, mountains and islands. Feels so special to pick at such a spot.

Today we hat record yield of 200 kg of flowers. Sage flowers are open and mostly pollinated so the plant smell intensity starts to weaken and the harvest is finished on Trtar hill for this year. We have picked a total of 400 kg of sage flowers and the best thing is that the whole hill is still purple with sage flowers and you cannot see that someone has been here.

Second day of Sage picking

9th of May 2017 First day Sage picking 2017

Trtar hill middle Dalmatia.

Altitude 450 m.

Sage just needed a little water to show its power and endurance as it prospers where other plants don’t. As we pick it, it is full of resin and sticks heavily to the fingers it releases complex smell of sage, mint, pine, honey, fruit and meadow flowers…we need to get these fragrances into our juice that surprises each time.

One thing you should be aware of while picking are dangers around you. Let`s start with what you wear. Footwear is really important and hiking boots are the best because of the karst terrain with a lot of loose rocks. They also give some protection of poisonous snakes which are common in this region although encounters are not that often but it is important to be aware of them. The best thing you can do is make them aware that you are there and they will mostly get away, they are sensitive to vibrations so making a march like steps or throwing a couple of stones around is also good to scare them off.

Sun protection and enough water are a must have, clothes should be well ventilated.

It is very important to work in teams and keep visual and vocal contact at all time, so if something happens to anyone help can be provided instantly. Wind can take away voices even when very close and walking and looking down for sage gets you far away fast.

Our yield was 150 kg at the end of the day.
