EASTER CLOSURE - week starting Easter Monday!

As many of you are already aware....we are not delivering at all week starting Easter Monday. Each year, for the last few, we have taken this week off due to the disruption to transport with good Friday and Easter Monday....not to mention we work some pretty heavy hours on the weekends organising produce & orders.... and we like to spend this time with our children. We wish you all a lovely long weekend filled with friends and feasts. For anyone ordering up this week to take you through until our return to deliveries (week starting Monday the 29th April) please add some Peak Fresh Bags to your order....they really are fantastic. So obviously we are delivering this week (Monday 15th - Thursday the 18th)...then not at all week starting Monday the 22nd April...then we will be back updating our website on Wednesday the 24th of April for deliveries starting Monday the 29th.

  • It's no wonder we get sent high fives, love letters and kisses when anyone talks about the Apples we have available from our friends at Forest Orchards - they are soooo good. Try sliced apple and a nut butter for a quick and satisfying snack. Apples - the original fast food!!! 
  • Thinking about fast food brings Mandarins to mind....Bonita anticipates they will start Easter week - so we will have Mandis back on the list on our return after the Easter break. Navel Oranges are ready and are back on the list this week. As they are each season, Bonita's fruit will be on the larger side - Know what to expect. We will continue to offer you end of season Valencia for another week from Fat Goose Fruit...although the fruit has been off the tree for some time and are looking a little tired, the size is good and flavour still great. Remember to refrigerate asap at your end and inspect on arrival - especially 3kg Bags....a suspect orange in a confined space can send the other fruit bad at lightning speed.
  • Crimson Grapes were excellent again this week - definitely the pick of the grapes. Please keep in mind that tightly clustered varieties like Crimson present some soft/wrinkly grapes each season. It is really unusual that you are able to eat every single grape on a bunch, also as we move to the end of the grape season you may notice a few more grapes on the bunch that have begun to deteriorate. Check your bunch on arrival and remove any damaged grapes before storing in the fridge. Could I suggest pulling the grapes off the bunch on arrival and then storing in a airtight container in the fridge...this way the kids (big and small) can just pour them into a bowl without actually having to check out which are good or not so good... 
  • Persimmons, Pears - all varieties, Bananas, Custard Apples & Passionfruit were also great this week. Tamarillos and Jaboticaba back on the list this week
  • Broccoli price has finally come back....Quality is great coming from Bio Fields in Tassie. Order with confidence. It's hard to believe....but Gary & Kathy Harm will probably start their QLD Broc season after the Easter break...which means it won't be long until they start their glamour Cauliflower season! Until then, can I suggest Small Cauli's from Fred. They have been really good and will remain the Produce Special this week. 
  • ...can't say the same for Celery. Price is still unreasonable high and quality not great. Most bunches have the centres cut out (this is happening on farm) and leaves are displaying some brown spotting. Only for those who can't be without. 
  • It's that time of the year again when the Allium Family is wanting to grow again. Under the right conditions your garlic and onions will come to life. Keep in a well ventilated, cool area of the kitchen. Don't let the green shoot put you off, just eat it !  Garlic price will soon begin increasing as demand will far outweighing supply as we approach end of season....the irony is that as the price goes up, the quality of the garlic will deteriorate : ( 
  • Broccoli (now $8.00 per kilo), Brussels Sprouts, Squash, Capsicum - all varieties, Leeks, Silverbeet, Carrots - normal and Dutch, Betroot Bunches, Lebanese Cucumber, Fennel, Eggplant, Pumpkin - Jap in particular, Snow peas, Sugar Snap Peas, Baby Spinach PP, Shallots and Sweet Potatoes were fantastic this week. 
           
  • 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 !  
  • Please return our boxes, icepacks and plastic boxes containing soft fruits and veges! These 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, lettuce and spinach boxes, 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.

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 : )

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.
