The days are getting longer, hinting at warmth and sunlight to come. In the meantime, however, we have many long cold days ahead of us, and are not quite through cold and flu season.

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!”
