  • The first of Pim's Strawberries have not disappointed this week. Yum. Pim is expecting to have enough fruit to supply all orders this week and not a moment too soon as Fred's Victorian season is coming to a quick close. Pim's Second Strawberries are also available this week. Veterans of Lettuce know our Second Strawberries are not last week's fruit - but rather Strawberries picked by Pim at the same time as our first quality punnets that are simply a strange shape, have a rub mark or an insect bite.     
  • Graeme's full complement of Apples are now available and are superb as we have grown to expect! It's hard to believe but....the Golden's are now what we consider a little 'soft'....don't let this put you off the flavour is still amazing!  
  • Mandarins & Navel Oranges coming from Bonita & Les Darrow in Mount Gayndah, QLD deserve a special mention - Deeeeelicious!
  • Kiwifruit, Dragonfruit, Ruby Grapefruit, Passionfruit and Pears - all varieties have been fantastic. 
  • ..QLD Beans were also fantastic this week coming from Trevor Mahaffey and David Cohen. 
  • Keep in mind your Brussels Sprouts may need stripping back. Each season, some of these delicate tiny cabbages develop black spotting on the outer leaves which need to be removed before cooking.
  • Looking for something quick, simple and delicious on time poor days ? Try an Asian Chopped Salad Mix with your choice of protein. A favourite combination seems to be Prawns....I can't believe how many people have emailed me about how good these are together! 
  • Rachel has a 2 week gap on Collards....and is starting her amazing Kohl Rabi this week. Don't be scared off by this odd looking purple veg. It is described as tasting similar to cabbage or broccoli stems (a fav in our house as you all know). It can be used in salads, soups and stews, stir fries just to name a few....not to mention it is packed full of vitamins and nutrients (like most organically grown Australian fresh produce : )).
  • Cabbage - all varieties, Carrots - Dutch and normal, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Beans, Leeks, Celery, Cucumber - both English and Lebanese, Fennel, Silverbeet, Asian Greens, Kale - all varieties and Zucchini were stand outs this week in the Veg department. Kestrel & King Edward Potatoes are back on the list this week...as well as Red Chillies.   
  • The end of the Onion and Garlic season 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, 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 starting to arrive in segments and most of the Italian Garlic is arriving with sprouts already obvious. Know what to expect.     
  • Tomato availability is still limited across the country. Some of the fruit we are supplying you from Shane 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 cylix. Any major problems lettuce know. Shane Snowpeas back on the list this week.  
  • RAW GOAT MILK SUPPLY...as with each year at this time, the supply of Raw, Unpasteurised Goats Milk is really tight. If you are relying on this product can I suggest you slip a few into your freezer now. We may look to Nimbin Valley for supply should there be a problem with supply from Jannei.

  • 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 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 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.
