Cold nights and warmer days mark the season for maple sugaring. Though we may be ready for sun and warmth, this transitional time is also a delicious one, with plenty of sweetness from the free-flowing sap, and exciting new shoots starting to make their appearance.

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. Stay healthy for the remainder of the winter by getting enough rest, washing your hands thoroughly and by eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Nutritionists often recommend “eating the rainbow” to ensure that you are maintaining a healthy diet. The wide spectrum of color found in your Boston Organics box this week is sure to help you meet that goal and nourish you throughout the season, and the year.

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.

With the dawn of 2016, we're reflecting on goals and intentions for the coming year. Whether your New Year’s resolutions include eating locally or simply aiming for five fruits or vegetables, Boston Organics and our regional farm partners are here for you, to help make those commitments easy and fun.
As we transition into the new year, it's a wonderful time for reflection and gratitude. One thing we are grateful for (besides this balmy weather) is that we're still delivering a bounty of organic, colorful produce from right here in the Northeast. In fact, we're delivering produce this week for every color of the rainbow.
A weekly update from Boston Organics.
It's official: We are in the best part of autumn. A highly sensory season, fall is filled with spicy smells, chilly breezes and the sounds of nature quieting in preparation for winter. Let's not forget the flavors, though, of sweet leafy greens, satisfying root veggies and hearty squash. It's a good week to get excited about the season, because fall is bursting out of every box.
