New England Organic Produce | Boston OrganicsThe geothermal greenhouses at L'Abri Vegetal were running vigorously all winter long and it paid off with an abundant early spring harvest of organic tomatoes and cucumbers.

L'Abri Vegetal has been a pioneer in organic greenhouse growing for more than 20 years, and as a member of the Deep Root Organic Coop, they share resources and information with a collection of other small, organic farms in northern Vermont and southern Quebec.

Locavore Recipe of the Week

This recipe for Potatoes and Celeriac Au Gratin makes use of the diverse collection of local spring produce in this week's boxes. Dogma Box customers can use potatoes from Maine and celeriac from Red Fire Farm in central Massachusetts.

The homemade tomato-basil sauce that's included in the recipe highlights the wonderful flavors of fresh basil from Happy Valley Organics and the previously mentioned slicing tomatoes from Deep Root Organic Coop.

If you want to use even more local ingredients, you can even substitute in some of Kimball Brook Farm's organic half-and-half and Neighborly Farm's Monterey Jack—both available in the dairy section of our add-on page.
