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.

Tuesday, February 9th is Mardi Gras, the final day of a season of festivities and feasting. In New Orleans, revelers nosh on King Cake, muffuletta sandwiches, jambalaya and crawfish etoufée to begin the somber season of Lent with a bang. This week, we’re celebrating Mardi Gras New England style! The winter veggies of our northerly latitude merrily don the traditional Mardi Gras colors of green, gold and purple and parade throughout Boston on their green plastic floats.

This week's boxes are all about weird but lovable relatives. From the mysterious Cameo apples (we're not sure how they're related, but we're too polite to say so) to cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, those estranged cousins, you'll find delightful, delicious produce filling your green box, whether you care to explore the botanical family tree, or just invite it in for family dinner.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

For the next month, a very special astronomical phenomenon will be visible in the morning sky—from January 20 to February 20, all five visible planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) can be viewed simultaneously in the wee hours of the morning. If you cast your sights a little closer to home, you may find a few especially bright points in your Boston Organics delivery this week too. We are excited to introduce two new items (Broccolini and kumquats), as well as see the return of Murcott mandarins. Unlike the five bright planets, which were last seen together fifteen years ago, we have only had to go without this tasty citrus since last winter.

This week's boxes include tasty treasures like crisp butter lettuce and intensely red blood oranges. We are grateful for all the nutrients packed into these brightly-colored foods, helping keep us healthy and well even when it's gray outside.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

Though late summer, with the much-anticipated arrival of long-season crops like tomatoes, eggplant and corn, may seem to be the peak season for most farmers, the colder months mark the beginning of busy season for Michael Docter of Winter Moon Farm. This is lucky for us; while we can relish the slower pace of January after the bustle of the holidays, we can be assured that we will have hearty, whole foods to help us along.
