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.)

All the snow we've gotten in the last couple of weeks has us looking at things in a new way. Snow-covered streets seem suddenly different, and the landscape keeps shifting as the snow melts, revealing things that were buried. As snow piled up, or got packed down into slippery ice, reliable paths suddenly seem strange. This shift in perspective can help us recognize what we usually take for granted, and look at them in a new light. This week, we are looking at things sideways and reconsidering familiar foods.

In this season of intense sun and heat, and equally intense storms, we just can’t do anything halfway. We get attached to special local items and want to eat them all the time, in everything. Read about this week’s seasonal favorites that we just can’t get enough of.
Happy National Bike to Work Week! This week, bicycle commuters, including a few Boston Organics employees, will celebrate the many benefits of cycling. If you see our cargo bike driver on the road, be sure to give him an extra friendly wave as he delivers your produce. Boxes this week are full of colorful produce, rivaling the brightest fluorescent bike attire. As the weather keeps getting better, we’re sure we’ll see more and more cyclists on the road. We want to keep all members of the Boston Organics Community powered up, regardless of how they choose to get around.
It's Marathon Monday, but today we also commemorate the first shots of the American Revolution, fired at Old North Bridge in Concord. The event was memorialized by Ralph Waldo Emerson in his 1837 poem Concord Hymn: “Here once the embattled farmers stood, /And fired the shot heard round the world.” Honor your modern farmers through your enjoyment of delicious organic produce, and take some bites heard round the world. And if you see our vans this week, feel free to shout out, “The green boxes are coming! The green boxes are coming!”
Fresh organic herbs are easy to enjoy on their own, with their leaves of many shapes and sizes, and distinct fragrances that make you want to walk around with a bundle tied to your nose. But it can be hard to keep track of them all, and to figure out how to use them while the tender leaves are still fresh. Boston Organics is here to help you keep these flavorful plants straight so you can use them with ease.
A weekly update from Boston Organics.
Summer in New England is something special. Maybe it’s because the days are so long and the nights are so hot, or because the winter is so bitter that even a tiny bit of sun is a welcome change.
The secret to good cooking is using fresh ingredients. This is doubly true when we’re talking about herbs.
The weather's warming up and while spring is still several weeks away, we're getting a sneak peek this week thanks to the sustainable greenhouses at Happy Valley Organics and Deep Root Organic Coop.
