PRODUCE SPECIAL : Yellow Peaches - 1kg or more - $16.00 per kilo.
Coming from Green Gables in Kingsvale, NSW.  

  • It's hard to believe....but change of season is here again! I am always very careful with our stonefruit over the last few weeks with fear that we will run things that week too long, especially considering the new season Apples & Pears are so good....We are hanging onto Yellow Peaches as they are still at their prime and will be for another week or two....as are the Plums - delicious! As we approach end of  our choice on size of peaches becomes very limited, so please embrace larger fruit as a last hoorar! Of course, we do take any preferences on size into consideration....but if all we have is large for example, all we can supply is large : ) 
  • ...thinking of Plums, please keep in mind that an extremely hot day can turn rock hard fruit to ready to eat at lightning speed. In fact the Angelina and Blood Plums we have sent out this week arrived to us pretty much ready to eat....some even displaying wrinkling at the cylix. Don't let this out you off the fruit is delicious! Angelino Plums now available - not to be mistaken with Angelina....these are a round plum with purple skin and yellow flesh. 
  • Valencia Oranges have seen better days....Fruit is now quite spongy to the touch - but don't judge a book by it's cover - flavour is still really good - but make sure you refrigerate asap at your end. Bonita and Les Darrow will begin to pick their early Navelina within the next few weeks....Aussie Kiwifruit and Imperial Mandarins aren't far off either !  
  • Crimson Grapes starting this week from Robinvale - always fantastic! ...and Thompson Seedless Grapes were a stand out this week - delicious...even though many of you have received single grapes....they fall of the bunch when handled. 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.  
  • Hass Avocadoes Cavendish Bananas, Grapefruit - both Ruby & Yellow, Blueberries (although the end of season is approaching), Pears - all varieties, Lemons, Limes and Rockmelon were great this week. Passionfruit and White Dragonfruit back on the list this week
  • Broccoli, Cauliflower and Celery prices are at a record high. Sorry everyone this is a direct result of very little supply and huge demand.....adding insult to injury the Celery is not great. In fact most have the centres cut out (this happens on farm with most SA grown bunches), leaves are displaying some brown spotting and the quality is generally pretty ordinary. Definitely only for those who can't be without. 
  • It is approaching that time again when the Allium Family are thinking about growing again....Don't let these signs of 'coming to life' put you off.... simply cut up shoot and all ! Russian Garlic bulbs are now also beginning to split which may result in us sending you Cloves rather than whole bulbs. 
  • Butter Beans available from Tim Hamilton this week. Order with confidence - Quality is superb. 
  • Beans, Basil, Corn, Leeks, Capsicum - all varieties, Snowpeas, Sugar Snap Peas, Cucumber - both Lebanese and English, Jap & Butternut Pumpkin, Silverbeet, Shallots, Cabbage - all varieties, Bok Choy, Eggplant, Roma Tomatoes, Carrots & Kumera were great 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.
