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.
As we prepare for the 4th of July holiday, red, white and blue are present everywhere. But more than any other color, green will be bursting like fireworks from Boston Organics boxes this week, and in many and varied forms the equal of any night sky spectacle. From curlicue garlic scapes to spade-shaped calaloo to wrinkled kale, you are sure to see all shades of green. Read on to learn about all the show-stoppers in this week’s boxes.
Though it may not officially start until Memorial Day, we're getting in the mood for summer.

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.

Happy Presidents’ Day! In Massachusetts, the holiday officially recognizes George Washington’s birthday, though in other states Abraham Lincoln shares the top billing. Though the founding father is often associated with cherries (and cherry trees), we present a rather different recipe in his honor, as well as some other suggestions for dining and snacking like a boss. We think Mr. Washington would approve.
