THIS WEEKS PRODUCE

New season POTATO from Thorpdale start this week, with Dutch Cream in the Victorian boxes for the first time in quite some time.

Biodynamic BUTTERNUT PUMPKIN is excellent and our pick for the pumpkin for the boxes.

CAPSICUM now coming from Mildura and Gippsland, after a little bit of sun got them ready for this week.

Still slow for Vic TOMATO but starting to see a couple more local growers starting to pick, with Inverleigh, Daylesford and Labertouche growers all expecting to pick for this week. Ronalds are still a few weeks away.

Purple GARLIC from Daylesford starts this week. CHERRY TOMATO from biodynamic gardens near Geelong also started this week, in 250g bags.

New season FENNEL is back from Koo Wee Rup.

From Labertouche in Gippsland CELERY halves will be the greens for the boxes, along with BLACK KALE from Mornington.

BEANS from Koo Wee Rup are pretty good value, whilst SNOW PEAS and SUGAR SNAPS are finishing.

SWEET CORN from Vic growers are excellent value - 2 for $4 - nice looking cobs this year.

BROCCOLI is from the Pakenham area - stalks are quite large on this summer variety, and price is pretty high given the time of year.

ROCKET wasn’t the best last week, so we’re going to give it at least another week before we decide to include again - and PARSLEY from Labertouche and Pearcedale is in between picks.

Biodynamic BLOOD PLUMS from Shepparton are still our favourite plum, with biodynamic PEACHES from near Swan Hill the best they’ve been this season so far.

New pick of MENINDEE SEEDLESS GRAPES for the Victorian boxes, and the red RALLI SEEDLESS is also available for orders.

New season KALIE APPLES are the pick for the boxes - coming from Red Hill. New season slightly tart PIPPIN APPLES are from Shepparton.

BANANA is still affected by those cyclones a few weeks ago, and may be short.

Plenty of AVOCADO though - from Mildura - just $4 for 3.
