Can someone advise me if olive trees can be grown and will bear fruit on a terrace getting 5 hours of direct sunlight daily? The terrace is very large and the trees would not be limited by height - sunlight is my only concern.Thanks in advance.

With the weather being more chilly and rainy, I find it hard to predict when I should wash clothes because of the drying time needed. How do you compensate for this? Don't like drying clothes indoors in the living room!

Where I'm from , the police have a community liaison who speaks with condo associations, business, schools, etc. about a variety of topics including safety. Since I am so new here but am involved in my condo association in a small way, I was wondering if the local precincts might have someone like this.
