Hi all
Very sweet watermelon today. Carrots are in bunches. Apparently you can make pesto out of the tops. The beetroot and red onion go wonderful well in a ‘vege roast’. Cut into smaller chunks. Pop in other veg such as potato, kumara, cauliflower, pumpkin and whole cloves of garlic (unpeeled). Toss in a few spigs of fresh thyme. Season with pepper and salt (flakey salt has a more subtle flavour). Sprinkle in 4 tablespoons of olive oil and cook at 200C for around 35 minutes tossing every now and then. It’s heaven to eat! Enjoy! Goodies List: Watermelon - 19 crates of 20 count Red Onions - 9 crates of 20kg Beetroot - 9 crates of 20kg Carrots - 24 crates of 16 bunches Cherry tomatoes - 19 crates of 20 count Bananas - 21 boxes of 18kg loose Apricots - 21 boxes of 10kg Pears - 20 crates of 15kg
For 31 Extra orders:
1 x 100 count avocado
2 x 4kg mushrooms
4 x 8 pack potatoes

Cheers Craig

Courgette - 18 crates of 15kg (crate number and weight may vary depending on what the market has available. Could also be some yellow courgette)
Cauliflower - 75 crates of 5 count
Plums - 18 crates of 15kg
Rockmelon - 25 crates
Carrots (loose) - 15 crates of 20kg
Bananas - 25 boxes of 15 packs of 15 count (may be more green than normal but they will ripen up)

And the Extras!

Tomato - 2 x 15kg crates
Broccoli - 1 x 30 count crate
