It's a good opportunity for us all to bask in the glory of the season, both this historic baseball series, and the delicious local produce 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!”

April is National Poetry Writing Month. We here at Boston Organics are partial to rhyme and alliteration, and employ these and other devices freely as we wax poetic about our favorite subject: organic fruits and veggies.

Bearing the fruits of vines and beanstalks.
Such wonderful loot,
Lots of veggies and fruit;
What goodies will be in my box?
