Morning

Nice mix of produce today.
A few of things to note:
The garlic is locally grown and best quality. Enjoy. Purchased direct from a registered grower in Templeton. A wee hint regarding use. Don’t worry about peeling the garlic before you pop it in your garlic crusher. The skin remains in the rusher. Actually, the grower said that cooking with the skin on isn’t an issue either. It often melts away. PLEASE NOTE: Garlic won’t feature on your MG documentation.

Fresh beans in our packs today are the last of the season Nelson grown, they’re very tasty. However, there are a few with marks so please sort carefully before you pop in the bags.

Finally, Persimmon appear this week. They can be eaten while hard (consistency of an apple) of you can wait for them to soften. Feel free to eat the skin or peel. 
Enjoy!

For Delivery 3rd May 2017

Morning all
Green’s are very short and expensive at the moment. They’re grown close by but are being sent north where there are huge shortages after the latest nasty weather. Growers get much better money even though they have to sustain freight costs. But…I did manage to get some Kale. Kale chips are very tasty so encourage your folk to Google Kale recipes. It’s a very healthy choice as far a veg goes.

Arriving tomorrow is:

Bananas - 20 boxes of 18kg loose
Capsicum - 21 boxes of 36 count
Mushrooms - 24 boxes of 4kg White Market Mix
Kale - 38 crates of 10 count in sleeves
Onions - 31 crates of 12 x 1.5kg bags 
Royal Gala Apples - 24 crates of 8 x 2kg bags (will need to divide contents of each bag in half)
Green Kiwifruit - 17 crates of 20kg

Extras:
Carrots - 3 x 14 bags (1.5kg ea)
Tomato - 1 x 15kg crate
Spring Onion - 2 crates of 25 count

Cheers for now
Craig
