We hope everyone is having a restful and meaningful Memorial Day. This week, we're experimenting with new items on the grill, exploring the many faces of cauliflower and getting creative with a new chef kit. No matter what you have cooking this week or as the summer starts to roll, you'll always be able to prepare delicious, produce-packed meals with help from your Boston Organics box.

There's no doubt about it, the Boston Organics Community sure ate well in 2016. Our farm partners and other suppliers kept us in fresh fruits and vegetables all year long, and it was a joy to see the shift from citrus and root crops in the winter to tomatoes and stone fruit in the summer, and to enjoy all the delicious produce in between.
To start 2017 off on the right foot, we decided to share our top-clicked recipes of the past year, to offer the opportunity to reprise tasty favorites or to find new inspiration for the year ahead.

This Thursday, September 22 is the autumn equinox, when day and night are the same length. (Approximately. We're mostly interested in the poetics.) This event marks the beginning of fall, and the ever-decreasing daylight as we head toward the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. The balance of light and dark at the equinox got us thinking about other opposing pairs. Read on to see how we're bringing together all sorts of opposites in the kitchen using produce from this week's boxes.

We may have put away our white pants for the season, and school may be back in session, but here at Boston Organics, we aren’t quite done with summer. Our farm partners continue to deliver an abundance of warm weather produce, from tomatoes to peppers to corn. And we say bring it! We are always game for more: more summer, more heat (though we’re not talking just about the weather) and more seasonal add-ons, all headed your way in this week’s boxes.
Since the beginning of daylight savings time, longer days have mostly meant longer evenings. The lingering afternoon sun can create a sense of abundance, of light and of time. But it can also be an uncomfortable and awkward season, with unpredictable precipitation and scraps of warmth. How many layers do I need? Darn, should have brought an umbrella.
There's one thing you can count on in this mercurial in-between season: your Boston Organics box will keep things fun, fresh and delicious.
Early spring can be a time of waiting and excitement. Warm days are so close we can taste them and new plants stretch slowly above the soil before the real green explosion begins. It can also be a time for seeking, whether we're looking for the first tiny blooms or chocolate eggs hidden in the yard. Don't worry though, your Boston Organics boxes will still come right to your door, though they contain plenty of produce to get excited about.
Shamrock shakes, green bagels, emerald-hued beers…St. Patrick’s day must be near! Whether you choose to celebrate along the South Boston parade route or with a hearty plate of Colcannon, it’s a time when everyone can experience the luck of the Irish. And lucky you are when you receive the fresh green treasures in this week’s boxes. (You may even spy some gold!)
