Popsicle Potluck

Posted by Miles Douglass on Jun 29, 2017 9:16:17 AM

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.

With the arrival of the summer solstice last week we can finally announce that summer is here! As we enjoy the abundance of summer sun, the variety of produce in boxes continues to grow as well. With all that sun comes the welcoming of a favorite item, summer squash. On top of that we will continue to offer cherries as an add on and we will have sweet and delicious pea shoots coming to us from Jonathan’s Sprouts. If you didn’t get a chance to order some of the wonderful garlic scapes last week have no fear: they are still available so give them a try. Oyster mushrooms round out the new items that you might see in your delivery and the variety this week is Italian Oyster.

Fresh from the Farm: Greens and Gatherings

Posted by Miles Douglass on Jun 5, 2017 9:06:27 AM

Here at Boston Organics, our four favorite words are: Local Greens are Back! This is always a fun time of year because it means that we get to share with all of our customers the best that Massachusetts farms have to offer. Perhaps even more than the date on the calendar, the arrival of local greens marks the beginning of summer and the local growing season. In addition to greens, the stone fruit and oyster mushrooms found in this week's boxes are just the ingredients to help you get in the spirit of summer - especially as you start to plan cookouts and summer gatherings.
