  • Did I say...finally our Navel Oranges would be on the smaller side as we like them from Fat Goose....a little reminder note to myself that until the fresh produce is in our warehouse there are no guarantees....A delay in transport resulted in fruit from the Howie family arriving Tuesday Monday....so some of the oranges we have supplied you this week are larger - thankfully we were able to get in some beautiful (but bigger) Navels from Brander at the last moment. So let's try that again : ) 
  • Fantastic Strawberries from Pim now $11.00. Treat yourself - they are delicious. Second Quality fruit also available....please keep in mind that until the Strawberries are being picked we have no idea how many seconds will be available....so please lettuce know if you would like a first quality punnet in replacement should there not be enough seconds to go around. Pim's Salad Mix has also been fantastic....our special 'lettuce' mix with no bitter leaves - thank you Pim.  
  • As many of you know we have exhausted our stocks of Forest Orchard Fuji's...we now have Fuji's available from Raw in Tassie. Gala from Forest are now on the incy wincy side : ) perfect for lunch boxes. Pink Lady and Golden on the other hand are a little larger than we would usually choose. As with each season as we get to this time of the apple season the Granny Smith become a little slippery. 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...also a quick note that the Golden Delicious are now what we consider 'soft' - certainly not for those who only like a crunchy apple. 
  • Daisy Mandarins, Lemons, Paw Paw & Papaya (still on grower special), Imperial Mandarins, Cavendish Bananas, Kiwifruit & Pineapples (still on grower special) have been great this week. Black Sapote back on the list from Furness. 
  • Sorry everyone - our Kumera and Limes are still super sized.....We do take into consideration your requests on size....but if we only have large goodies arrive....then large it is. As many of you know we do not sell from stock we have in our coolrooms....but rather talk to our growers and suppliers about the stock that is yet to be picked and packed...so we can at times be surprised when we roll back the curtains of the truck. 
  • Put Celery back on the menu. QLD stock is looking and tasting amazing. Bunches are still on the smaller side - but wow - yum! To revive a droopy celery stick - Simply re-cut the stem and submerge in water. The transformation will be nothing less than miraculous! 
  • The end of the Onion and Garlic season is upon us, 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, they are 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. Russian Garlic is now starting to arrive in segments, not bulbs and the Italian Garlic (most bulbs) are showing some sign of sprouting, with cloves also now breaking apart when touched. Know what to expect.     
  • 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. 
  • Generally speaking - as with most Winters our Veg is fantastic. Stand outs this week - Zucchini, Cabbage - all varieties, Beetroot, Brussels Sprouts (although, as usual, most do need a little stripping back), Corn, Cucumber (English now coming from Wilderness Farm), Cherry Tomatoes - both varieties (Grape are pretty ripe), Potatoes, Jap Pumpkin and Shallots.  
  • Tomato availability has improved with a flush coming from QLD. Take advantage everyone...the fruit is delicious and on grower special again this week. 
  • 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. 
  • 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.
