The weather is perfect right now. Sunny and springlike in January - a bit ridiculous but I'm so thankful for the warmth and light.
I met up with Lisa to walk down to Veronica Peoples Club for our first pickup from Plovgh. Plovgh is a different kind of CSA. Traditionally with farm shares you pay a specified amount and have a weekly pickup of produce and goods from a local farm. The offerings are seasonal and you receive whatever is given to you. Plovgh is different in that you can pick and choose what you want to order and pay per item. The items are still provided by local farms but you are able to buy what you know you like and will use.
I ordered pickled carrots with ginger and cinnamon as well as a pickle sampler care of Partners Trace Farm. Plovgh's full list of available items can be seen here. The pickup points are at Veronica Peoples Club in Greenpoint and at the Dekalb Market in Downtown Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon. I love this concept and will definitely be ordering from them regularly.
