She Brakes for Wisconsin Chickens

Our neighbors own a Christmas Tree farm in Wisconsin, and every year they travel to it for final chores and marketing right about Thanksgiving.  They are there right now, as a matter of fact.

Now, I spent a lot of time hatching some thoughts with these neighbors about the prospect of getting a Page County Grown CSA going here in Alexandria.  There seems to be a consensus (among some of the neighbors, as well as my "farmer friend" in Luray, that a chicken CSA is very feasible.  Still work to do on this account, but that is the set up for the photo.

Saturday afternoon, sitting out on the brick porch for a short while, the iPhone buzzed that I had received a text message from my neighbor.  She sent this iPhone photo, very nice image (she is a professional photographer after all!). 

The message said that they were making good progress on the farm chores, and were wrapping up early for the day since the weather was getting worse.  On the way home, they'd stopped by the neighbor's, who took them in for a look at the henhouse.
