Boxes of Fruit

What a fantastic day for fruit!

If you want to keep your fruit bowl full try looking outside the supermarket. We buy from a mate who goes to the fruit markets at Rocklea in Brisbane, so we always have fresh fruit and we always save money. If you don't know someone who goes to the market, pull your local green grocer aside and get talking.

Today we picked up 33 kilo of fruit from The Marketman for only $30 - a 20kg box of apples for $20 and a 13kg box of bananas for $13. The bananas are a few days off being ready, but the apples are crunchy and sweet.

I'm not sure what the supermarkets are charging this week for fruit but last week we paid $2.98 a kilo for apples and bananas were certainly more than a dollar a kilo.

Obviously at the moment there must be a glut of fruit out there and us Devereaux's are happy to do our bit to help our farmers.

Anyway 33kg of fruit will keep the kids running to the loo for the next week :)

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
