Hanging Squash

We used to have 99 laying hens that provided our family with fresh eggs, and also a bit of an income. 

The kids were young and needed chores to 'build their character and work ethic'.  But alas now we've sold off the flock and have been purchasing the neighbour's eggs.

He drops them off on Saturday mornings directly into our sad looking rusted-out mailbox right outside our front gate.  Our two dogs LOVE to see him coming, as he gives them doggie treats.

This past Saturday he left me a treat as well.

Attached to twine, a beautiful butternut squash  from his garden.

THANK YOU neighbour for your genorosity

and for the lovely eggs.
