We get a weekly organic fruit and vegetable box from a fairly well known online fresh food delivery company. We were getting the family box but dropped back down to the couple’s box a while ago and we bulk it up with fruit and veg bought locally. I’ve been really happy with the service. And the price. And the quality, most of the time. Everything was going along just peachy.
Enter: The Cabbage.
That’s a big cabbage, right? That damn cabbage has been appearing in our couple’s box about every fortnight for over a month now. At one point I had two and a half of these babies gawking at me every time I opened my fridge. So I gawked back. And left them there. What a waste! And, correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think cabbage is even in season in Australia right now? I’m confused. I’m pretty upset. Ok, I’m downright angry!
So I ring this popular company and have a chat. I’m Lucy, and Lucy answered the phone. So things were friendly from the get-go. I said to Lucy: “Seriously Lucy, it’s a couple’s box. What are two people supposed to do with a basketball sized cabbage?” Lucy had a laugh. I asked her what would happen if I said I was seriously allergic to cabbage. She said I’d have to opt out of the box and pick my fruit and veg singly. Damnit Lucy! She said she’d get my driver to give me a call so we could talk about it. It’s been almost a week and I haven’t heard a thing.
On my to-do list tomorrow is to check out some other options in the way of organic fruit and vegetable delivery. I was starting to feel a bit like this company is kinda big enough to almost be like Coles or Woolworths in costume anyway.
Do you have a great, affordable, friendly, strong-aversion-to-cabbage, family-run organic business in Melbourne? Do you want a new customer? Gimme your best sales pitch! I’m all ears!
And/or do you have a really awesome recipe involving cabbage that you want to share with me?
