29th March at the co-op

This week at the co-op we have lots of lovely local produce and the food boxes are scheduled to contain:

  • zucchinis (2 types to choose from)
  • tomatoes
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • Swiss brown mushrooms OR yellow squash
  • Cabbage OR brussel sprouts OR rocket
  • capsicums OR Lebanese cucumbers
  • passionfruit
  • watermelon
  • bananas
  • Valencia oranges
  • pumpkin (2-3 types)
  • Lettuce (2 types)
  • carrots
  • beans

The list changes weekly depending on what's available from the farmers (hope we haven't forgotten anything in the list above), and fairly often there can be last minute changes, depending on the weather, the rabbits or the wallabies, and so forth. If there are any late changes we order and substitute another vegetable.

On the extras table we will have some gramma (for yummy gramma pie), bunches of rocket and silverbeet, purple radishes, beetroot and coriander, bok choy, and good ol' Aussie garlic and ginger.

We're crossing our fingers that Antje is back with her hand made bread, and we hear that some members are turning up tomorrow with home grown (and chemical free of course) beans, lemon cucumbers, bunches of basil and local bananas.

Thank you to those FIGGERs who arrive from time to time with produce to give away. This is generally herbs and bay leaves, and the dried chilli a while back was extremely popular! Last week we had a huge range of herbs and edibles brought in. Thank you very much, to everyone for your generosity in sharing with others.

Don't forget to provide feedback on a FIG seed swap as some members have expressed interest in this.

Don't forget FIG can order in organic local goats milk, too. Order at the desk.

See you at the co-op...!
