  • So here we are again.....updating our site while we are still packing and invoicing orders for this week...And of course now asking you to order again, even though many of you are still awaiting this week's delivery !!! : ) .....the good news is - generally speaking the fruit & veg we have on offer has been excellent this week. Dutch Carrots, Cauliflower (only $6.60 each), Sweet Potato, Broccoli, Broccolini, Beans and Brussels Sprouts are stand outs in the veg....
  • Strawberries from Pim a clear stand out in the fruit if you are looking for a treat. Flavour has been amazing and quantities are increasing - now $9.00 each.
  • Fuji and Pink Lady Apples from Forest Orchard are also divine - Crunchy with a great flavour. Please keep in mind that Granny Smith Apples become slippery as they age. The apple itself is so clever that it is secreting a protective layer to prolong it's life. We often get asked about whether or not Organic Apples are waxed when Grannies work their magic. Rest assured waxing of Apples is not allowed under the National Standard for Organic Production. Golden Delicious Apples are now what we consider 'soft' - certainly not for those who only like a crunchy apple. Jonathon Apples still on Grower Special - $6 - $8 per kilo this week. 
  • Lemons (which have finally come down in price), Imperial Mandarins, Cavendish Bananas, Kiwifruit, All varieties of Pears & Navel Oranges also great.  
  • Hass Avocado price is also finally coming back in price - but is still up there - can I direct you all to the 2nd Quality fruit, as it is much better value for money compared to the pieced fruit...there is nothing wrong with these avos, other than the fact that they may be extra small, an odd shape or have a mark on the skin. They are picked, packed and delivered at the same time as the trayed fruit....as are all of the Second Quality offerings we have for Lettuce Customers. Moving 'last weeks' stock is never an issue for us as we specialise in 'fresh produce'....are seconds are exactly that...seconds due to shape and size - not old.     
  • Put Pim's Salad Mix back on the menu...how we have missed you! With the warmer weather Pim's lettuces are now in full swing with enough punnets to go round for all orders! 
  • Charlie's locally grown Green Cabbage our produce special again this week. Try making your own Coleslaw - so easy. Charlie's Fennel (although on the smaller side) and Silverbeet have also been great. Time for me to mention Jamie Oliver's Radish and Fennel Salad - again....a favourite in our house - so fresh, easy and delicious! - Slice Radish and Fennel very thinly, and then mix with olive oil and lemon juice with salt and pepper to taste. YUM !  You can also use the Radish leaves in the salad if they are in good condition.... 
  • Thinking of locally grown goodness immediately brings Rachel's Kohl Rabi to mind. Try something new this week. For everyone asking about Rachel's Collards - they will be back on the list week starting 25th June.  
  • Baby Spinach and Rocket punnets coming from Coolibah Herbs are now containing a little Winter grass...this really can't be helped in the cooler months. Know what to expect. 
  • End of season Onion and Garlic is upon us once again...this can result in the veg beginning to want to grow again under the right conditions. Store in a well ventilated, cool area of the kitchen. If your onions or garlic do start to sprout, it is still fine to eat. You can remove the sprout if you prefer, otherwise simply cut up, sprout and all ! New season will start again in September/October. Garlic is now showing signs of age with some cloves arriving already showing signs of life (sprouting), while others are arriving a little discoloured and/or in segments not bulbs. 
  • Tomato availability is still pretty limited. Some of the fruit we are supplying you is a little greener than we would usually like due to the cooler weather. These tomatoes are mature, but not ripe. Do not refrigerate. If possible leave in a closed paper bag in a warm location of the kitchen and the fruit will colour up within the next few days. Unfortunately we do sometimes see problems with tomatoes that take an extended time to ripen with sore spots that develop around the calyx. Any major problems lettuce know.
  • Due to the cooler weather we are experiencing an egg and milk shortage. We will have enough of both in total numbers to supply all orders...but we may sub to a brand you have not ordered. If you are wanting the brand of eggs or milk you have ordered or nothing at all please advise. 
  • Please return our boxes, icepacks and plastic boxes containing soft fruits! These are of a considerable cost to our business and can be used over and over again if treated with care. We also welcome the return of all other packaging material that may find it's way into your order, egg cartons, bubble wrap, etc. I know many are sceptical about the recycling of goods through local councils....but please be assured we deliver all of the packaging material we use (when the end of their life is upon us) into Sydney Markets where recycling is a big business.....Please leave all these goodies in your returning boxes out for our drivers to collect on your next delivery. 
  • Did you know we have Recipe Packages, also simply known as Meal Inspiration for those of us preparing dinner for the fam each evening...Head to our Meal Inspiration Page to find this week's selection of Recipe inspirations. We know you all have things in your pantry like Olive Oil so with our packages you can simply add the package to your cart and then delete any goodies you don't require. So simple !  

We have updated our website with the most up to date and accurate information available to us at this time, but due to many factors including that most of the produce is yet to be picked there is of course some uncertainty with our expected supply. The good news is that we have quite a few supply options available to us and so we may list a Grower on our site that does not end up supplying us goodies this week. Rest assured we only deal in Certified Organic, Australian Grown Fruit and Veges - so any replacements we may supply to you from other Aussie Growers will also be grown in line with the National Organic Standard. You don't have to take our word for it... Lettuce Deliver is also a Certified Organic Retailer (NASAA Retailer R9291) which means that we have to be able to prove any claims we make about a products organic status at a moment's notice : )

GOAT MILK

As with each year at this time, the supply of Raw, Unpasteurised Goats Milk is really tight. We will do our best to share around the stock we receive each week until of course the supply dries up completely - which will not be far away.   

MILK

...in many cases the Milk we offer you needs to be pre-ordered at our end a week in advance. Most of the time our guess- timates are spot on...but we have been caught out on the odd occasion. We do have a number of Dairy options available to us and so if we run short  on some varieties, we may look to others to fill the gap. If you would like us to supply ONLY the milk you have ordered or nothing at all, please make a note with your order.

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS

As you know, we charge your credit card for your delivery total on the day of or day after your delivery. Please ensure that we have your up to date credit card details and that there are sufficient funds available on the day of your delivery for us to process your payment.
