It’s time for the meat kings, the breed of broiler chickens we’ve raised… to die, they’ve had a good life…. a simple life…. not all that long a life…. but they’ve pecked about, flapped their wings, cocked their heads, shaken a tail feather or two and gotten used to their bedtime song: “you’re next in line sleepy chicken”.

Their appointment at the slaughter house is 8am Monday morning, halfways across the province. This means I will not be able to stay in town Sunday night and deliver to cafes or other locations on Monday morning, so be in touch if you are not able to make it to the BST on Sundays evening.
SO THIS WEEK ONLY let me know if you’d like a whole fresh chicken delivered to you this week on Wednesday, whatever is unclaimed by Tuesday will be frozen but remain available to you for purchase. These birds are smaller than the first batch roughly 7 pounds each dressed (which means without feathers or innards, before your imagination starts a grotesque fashion show), but they are every bit as tasty. If you are interested in reserving a bird for a future week, such as Thanksgiving you can also let me know how big a bird you’d be looking for and we’ll tag it for you now.

That brings me to my weekly reflection; is life like a circle?… or is it more of a tangent? and is the answer a matter of perspective? One may say we are all connected, we are forever ebbing and flowing, we are born to diapers and return to diapers, we eat from the earth and then return to it….. Another might say, you are on your life’s path and it’s not good to double back, you plant the seed, you water the plant and you eat the fruit…. who saves their seeds? Who is not changed by each passing season …and though winter returns we continue to grow.
When I started this CSA project I thought: 9 months, start to finish. This week marks the beginning of the end; counting down the last 5 boxes. Now that the fall is here and the beds are being turned over for their winter crop rotation I wonder who’s interested in another whirl around the sun, no promises, just curious.
