Peas in East England last week now this, UK Farmers are under a bit of pressure at the moment, interesting to see how mouch pressure they soak up themselves and how much they pass on to supermarkets/consumers. Never mind the aussie winter wheat crop

Oh, pardon me.

Much more significant price rises from the food processors on the way I reckon.

Nestlé chief fears food price inflation

By Geoff Dyer in Beijing

Food prices are set for a period of “significant and long-lasting” inflation because of demand from China and India and the use of crops for biofuels, according to the head of Nestlé .

Peter Brabeck, chairman of the world’s largest food company, said rises in food prices reflected not only temporary factors but also long-term and structural changes in supply and demand.

“They will have a long-lasting impact on food prices,” he told the Financial Times during a visit to China.

Ahh, but first we need to have the taxpayer subsidise our "business"

Then we can have shows "Fruit and Veg Ladder"

Then when food becomes unaffordable for key workers the government can implement shared ownership of Food Pyramids. But being government built food pyramids it'd be loaded with sugar and no real sustanance

I've had the worst potato blight ever this year. Spraying has been an expensive waste of time. Luckily I planted very early this year due to the warm weather and some of the plants flowered. I've just finished pulling the last of them. Some of the potatoes were like soap and absolutely stank. However, I've managed to salvage 80% of the crop.

Must be utterly soul destroying for the big producers. :(
