Two of my favorite things about Vermont: the food and the sense of community. I joined a CSA (Pete's Greens) not too long ago in my ongoing efforts to be a localvore. After signing up, I thought it may have been a mistake to start in the winter instead of during the warmer months...but then my first share came and it was amazing. Pete's Greens does an amazing job of providing a giant selection of fantastic produce and other local deliciousness throughout the snowy months (and newsletters with recipes and storage tips and other fun stuff). And now I can't ever move away, because I'm afraid I'll never find a CSA as great as Pete's Greens.

Exhibit A: a weekly share in November

Exhibit B: fancy striped beets in January (I plan to use some of these in a dyeing experiment, woo!)

And then! A new group on Etsy! A group of Vermont makers! I love communities of creative people. So..check out all the great stuff being made in Vermont by the good people of the Vermont Etsy Street Team:
