  • ...with more beautiful one day, perfect the next weather Pim's Strawberries are looking and tasting amazing! Treat yourself - $7.50 per punnet this week. 
  • Fuji are now the pick of the Apples for those of you who like your apples with crunch. Some of the fruit is displaying 'water core'...this is a phenomena that makes the core of the Apple look wet…..basically the apple has been sun ripened to the point that starch converts to sugar making the fruit extremely sweet !  Don't let it put you off - there is nothing wrong with the apple itself, in fact in some countries these fetch a much higher price and are very sought after.... Golden Delicious Apples are now what we consider 'soft' and Grannies are feeling a little waxy - rest assured they are not waxed, this is not allowed under the National Standard for Organic Production...Grannies are so clever that as we move further into the season, the apple itself secretes a coating to prolong it's life. Amazing !  
  • Fuerte Avocadoes on grower special this week - $3.60 each. 
  • Pears - all varieties, Bananas, Grapefruit - Ruby in particular, Kiwifruit, Navel Oranges and Imperial Mandarins were fantastic this week. Tangellos returning to the list from Karra. 
  • Bunched Rocket now available from Paul Cremona - bunches were excellent this week. 
  • Locally grown Collards back on the list from Rachel. Try something new. Collards are fantastic as a substitute for a wrap or taco, the leaf is strong, yet delicate with a slightly bitter taste. 
  • Corn from Pinnacle was amazing this week, although the husks are a little dry as we expect with most QLD Corn - don't let this put you off...the kernels are sweet and juicy.
  • Cherry Tomatoes are in good supply this week - down to $4.40 for Grape and Round. 
  • 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 showing signs of life (sprouting), while others are arriving a little discoloured and/or in segments not bulbs. 
  • Veges generally speaking have been outstanding. Broccoli (our produce special), Cauliflower, Carrots, Beans, Leb Cucumber, Cabbage - all varieties, Pumpkin - all varieties, Zucchini, Roma Tomatoes, Grape Cherry Tomatoes, Parsnip, Celery & Leeks were stand outs. 
  • Please return our boxes, icepacks and plastic boxes containing soft fruits and veges! 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, 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. 
  • 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 !  

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.
