We may be getting a little ahead of ourselves, but with Memorial Day coming in just a week, we're pulling out the beach towels, grills and other essentials for summer. Some of those essentials can be found in your Boston Organics box: from basil to stone fruit, keep an eye out for warm weather favorites. (And don't forget to check out our blog for inspiration for how to use your custom box for all of your summertime adventures.)

Happy National Bike to Work Week! Here at Boston Organics, we have a handful of staff who regularly cycle to the office, and one dedicated rider who does so no matter the weather, braving rain and snow. Fortunately, neither of those is on the horizon this week; the forecast is calling for beautiful, sunny days (for the later part of the week, anyway). What better time to take your bike out for a spin? Regardless of how you choose to get around, the produce in this week’s boxes will help nourish you and inspire you to lean in to spring.

It feels as though spring has finally arrived, with tons of new life in the form of blooming flowers and chirping birds and seedlings thriving at our partner farms. At Boston Organics, several staff have recently become dads, and we love hearing about their kids as they grow, change and make adorable faces. We also love hearing about what they eat, because, well, that’s what we’re about.
Fleet Manager Tom Ayling’s daughter Rose and Operations Assistant Dave Jeffery’s son Jack were born within a week of each other at the end of last summer. Nine months later, they’ve tried their first solid food, grown a few teeth and are two of our favorite produce eaters. We caught up with Tom and Dave to hear about their adventures in preparing solid food and introducing their kids to new produce items.
Spring is definitely in the air - literally. Even if you suffer from the itchy nose and eyes that come with seasonal allergies, we think that the flavorful produce in this week's boxes is bright, crunchy and fragrant enough to provide a tasty, tasty distraction. Enjoy veggies in new shapes, the beginnings of new plants or a new appreciation for sweet and juicy fruit.
On Saturday, twenty horses will compete in the Kentucky Derby in Louisville. This year's race is the 143rd annual derby; it has occurred every year since 1875. Get in the spirit of race day with the help of the produce in your Boston Organics box.
When the sun shines on our faces it suddenly seems like the world is full of wondeful new possibility. Ok, so maybe we're being a little hyperbolic... but only a little. This week, take a moment to appreciate all the possibilities contained in your Boston Organics box. From local mushrooms to brightly colored rhubarb and carrots, you will see delicious organic ingredients to use as you channel your springtime inspiration.

April showers may bring May flowers, but gosh do we wish those showers weren’t snow. Fortunately, delicious local produce will be showering into Boston Organics boxes this week, including several new items.
Cold nights and warmer days mark the season for maple sugaring. Though we may be ready for sun and warmth, this transitional time is also a delicious one, with plenty of sweetness from the free-flowing sap, and exciting new shoots starting to make their appearance.
