Hanging onto summer: Organic corn
Sweet, tender organic corn-on-cob says end-of-summer like almost nothing else. While exquisite, corn is very susceptible to pests, particularly silkworms. Unlike conventional growers, organic corn growers can't spray their fields with chemical pesticides, which is a big invitation for the little buggers to eat away.

August/September are wild blueberry harvesting season! It's a short, sporadic season so get them while you can! We have organic blueberries (half-pint) available as an add-on almost year-round, but wild blueberries are in another league entirely.

If you’re a native New Englander or longtime Boston resident, then August is probably one of your favorite months for fresh, organic fruit. Not only are juicy heirloom tomatoes ready for harvest and stone fruit at its peak, it’s also the heart of the short but spectacular wild blueberry season.
The Boston Organics Community includes some pretty talented farmers, but there are some things that nature simply does better than any human can. One such thing is growing blueberries.
We’ve had organic blueberries available as an add-on for several weeks, but wild blueberries—the kind that you dreamt about as a kid—are in another league entirely.

Watermelons are the cream of the summer crop. Juicy and refreshing, sweet and crisp, these melons make the perfect summertime dessert, picnic snack or barbeque side. But as common as watermelons are, how well do you really know them? We often just slurp down cubes and gleefully munch the top off triangular slices on hot days. Read on to get to know this taken-for-granted summer staple.

We know you value organic produce for the benefits it has both on your health and the environment. But as a busy Bostononian, you might not have time to visit the source -- the farms. At Boston Organics, we also value transparency in the supply chain and make sure that the food you eat comes from truly sustainable operations.
Every season we like to visit growers that are a part of our network. Not only does this help maintain our strong working relationships, but it also gives us an opportunity to ask questions and see how they continue to make positive changes on their farms.
Earlier this summer, we sent a few members of the Boston Organics Crew to western Massachusetts for a few of these visits. Here’s how our day went.

Summer starts a little later in New England than in other parts of the country, but when it finally gets here we're treated to a delicious bounty of stone fruit, greens, and other delicious treats. For new Boston Organics customers, there might occasionally be items in your box that you're not familiar with. We've put together our Summer Produce Guide to provide you with a snapshot of what's to come this season.
