Week 1 of the MimoMex vegetable & egg shares. Strawberries & snap peas in the Greig Berry Share! Our inaugural meat share! Plus visits from baby goats & Eagle St Rooftop farm. Good times as we enjoyed a great Monday night in the backyard at the Woods.
Check out the booty from this week:Greig Farm Berry Share (Week 7/22)
- 1 bucket of Strawberries (approx 5 lbs)
- 1/2 pound of Sugar Snap Peas
Damn sweet share this week!
A crew of us went out to Greig Farm last Sunday (June 12th) for a berry picking fest and tour of the farm. It was such a great time! It is always so informative to listen and learn from our farmers as we walk the fields that produce the food we eat. Red Hook is so gorgeous and it was great to be able to pick a strawberry and pop it right into our mouth. A post about the trip is coming soon. We highly recommend that you take a quick trip North to pick your own real soon. www.greigfarm.com for more info! Save the date for a blueberry picking trip on either July 23 or 24th)

Sooooo exciting to start up the season with our first delivery of vegetables from MimoMex Farm. For some, it was the first time seeing a fresh onion or purslane. Look for posts about these less known herbs and veggies in the future. And let us know what you have been cooking up…
