As the weather heats up we are always on the lookout for how to cool down. One of the best ways that we have found is an old classic: popsicles! Homemade pops are easy to make at home and much better for you than anything you would find at the store. Popsicles are not just for kids and can be a great way for anyone to beat the summer heat. Not only are they easy to make but they are also a great use of the wonderful fruit that arrives in your Boston Organics delivery. Try them out at home; we are confident that you will find popsicles to be the best way to stay cool on a hot summer day.
Boston Organics is rolling out the royal treatment this week, as we do every week for our customers. The boxes will be filled with treasure from Golden Kiwis to Tiara Cabbages with lots of ruby red strawberries and sapphire-colored blueberries. With your scepter of asparagus grown by Pedersen Farms and an array of regal produce, including celery from Queen’s Greens Farm you will be prepared to rule your kitchen kingdom in delicious style.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.
Who doesn't love this time of year?! While we're looking forward to late fall and all of its leaf-crunching walks, crisp, starry skies, pumpkin carving and warm, spiced beverages, early fall is where it's at. Right now is the perfect time to enjoy gorgeous weather, lighter city crowds and a nearly inexhaustible variety of local, organic produce.
It's one of the best times of year to live in New England. The days are still long and warm, but the evenings become cool and crisp. And it's during this straddle-season that we get to savor the final flavors of summer while enjoying those first tastes of fall.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.
As summer vacation starts to wind down, some of the best organic fruits and vegetables are just starting to arrive. Fresh corn and Asian eggplant fill many of the Boston Organics Community’s boxes this week, and Dwight Miller and Son Orchards will share their first apple harvest of the season with us, as well. Meanwhile, Kitchen Garden and Atlas Farm each have special tomatoes that are just begging to be eaten.

If you’re a native New Englander or longtime Boston resident, then August is probably one of your favorite months for fresh, organic fruit. Not only are juicy heirloom tomatoes ready for harvest and stone fruit at its peak, it’s also the heart of the short but spectacular wild blueberry season.
The Boston Organics Community includes some pretty talented farmers, but there are some things that nature simply does better than any human can. One such thing is growing blueberries.
We’ve had organic blueberries available as an add-on for several weeks and even had a few pints of super delicious local, organic blueberries from Dwight Miller Orchard in our boxes last month, but wild blueberries—the kind that you dreamt about as a kid—are in another league entirely.
Our Dogma Box includes organic fruits and vegetables sourced as close to Boston as possible throughout the year. Similar to a CSA or farm share, this box is filled with the best organic produce from local and regional farms each week.
