This past week was our week off of the CSA. We were in dire need of some time away, and so we watered and fed the chickens, packed the dogs and tents, and got lost in Arizona for a few days. Our destination: the grand canyon. And it truly was grand, magnificent, really. The drive took a lot longer than we anticipated; thankfully it was a scenic one and we were armed with podcasts, short stories on tape, and for me, Joel Salatin’s Folks, This Ain’t Normal.
We were relieved upon returning home to find that no chickens had died of dehydration or drowned in the extra pots of water I had put out (I love them but they really aren’t very smart). We are rested, refreshed, and ready to embark on another six week round of boxes. A big thanks to our CSA members for giving us this week!
