Sure, plucking roses from your neighbor’s window box is one way to fill your vase.
But there’s no need to be a prick.
Instead, sign up for a CSA membership from Love ’n Fresh Flowers, an urban farm and floral studio known for unfussy wedding designs (like buds clustered into jars and vintage vessels).
Join now and in a week’s time you’ll have a bucket overflowing with loose stems ready for pickup in Chestnut Hill. Since space is limited, it’s also prime time to sign up for next year.
Grab some care instructions or, if you’re totally clueless, enroll in one of owner Jennie Love’s arranging workshops (though with the vibrant late-summer harvest, making beautiful bouquets is pretty much goof-proof).
The bunches give you enough to scatter throughout your home. So you don’t have to be a thorn in anyone’s side yard.
Available online at lovenfreshflowers.bigcartel.com, $96 for a four-week share.
