November Seasonal Update
Oct 31, 2023
Can you believe November is here already?! Where did the month go?? 😲
On Our Farms
November is bringing a heap of hot, dry weather to southeast Queensland this year ☀️
We will continue to harvest leafy greens, coriander, dill, parsley, ginger, daikon and more as long as weather permits!
And of course the crops that love the heat like ginger and watermelon are happily soaking up all this heat and sunshine.
We're also focussing on cover cropping and regenerating our soils while ensuring water supply remains stable.
We're super excited to announce our new partnership with the A team at Hampton Blue.
Hampton Blue is a certified organic blueberry and raspberry orchard situated in Hampton, 30kms north of Toowoomba amongst the tall timbers of the Great Dividing Range.
From this week, while in season we will have a direct supply of their amazing certified organic blueberries (and hopefully raspberries if they have some available).
Avocados are still going strong! As the weather warms up, we'll be switching to a supplier down south so there shouldn't be much of an interruption in supply.
Last season apples, both red and green, are crisp and tasty! We work with a few farms as needed, and do our best to always have these lunchbox staples on hand for you.
Local lemon supply is becoming limited in the warmer weather, but we're working on sourcing them from northern NSW and will do our best to have plenty available. Limes have finished up for a while but should be back before Christmas.
Also our local Oranges have finished up, but we have a great partnership with our NSW and Victorian growers to ensure lots of fresh fruit for the summer season ahead.
Both papaya and bananas are happy with the longer, hotter days and will be going strong for a while yet.
Mangoes aren't here just yet (we know, we know!!). We're working with some local growers and if all goes to plan we should have some new season mangoes available by the end of the month!
As it continues to heat up, we're actively transitioning suppliers to cooler growing regions, so that we can continue to access the best organic veg for you.
Asparagus is still going strong! It is beautiful and sweet, so don't miss out on this under-appreciated seasonal gem.
As always, we've got beautiful silverbeet, curly kale, black kale, choi, baby spinach, plus lettuce and salad available.
Carrots, are yummy and in great supply, as are onions and zucchini.
We still have a good supply of tomatoes from a couple of local suppliers, and as the weather warms up that will slow.
Cucumber, beans, capsicum and eggplant are looking beautiful and these will continue to increase in supply as the summer heat rolls in.
As a side note, check out this cool white eggplant we received in an order last week! Veg never fails to amaze us!
Beans, broccoli, cabbage, fennel, and baby broccoli are all still in good supply and looking absolutely amazing.
As we transition our sweet potato supplier, there may be a bit of a temporary lull in availability for a few weeks. Never fear, this is totally normal for this time of year and won't last long!
There are lots of potatoes on offer! We've still got a mix of Dutch Creams and Sebagos being harvested from our farm in Woombye.
As always, if you have any questions about seasonal availability simply shoot us a message or ask our team at market 😃
Thank you for supporting your local farmers!
