How are you coping with the Cauliflower crisis?

Britain is in the grip of a cauliflower crisis, with supermarket shelves emptying after heavy rain destroyed this year’s crop in Lincolnshire, while alternative European supplies are drying up after the continental heatwave

I was wondering where they had all gone

I’m cheesed off about it.

Are the Turnips also rotting in the ground ?

These crises never really amount to much. Wasn't there a carbon dioxide 'crisis' this time last year?

You can't make veg in a factory though.

FredDee - 13 Aug 2019 17:15:44 (#6 of 101)

it's bound to be OK. Certainly there is no such crisis in the rest of the EU so import from the continent.

bossab2 - 13 Aug 2019 17:17:14 (#7 of 101)

The canny Europeans are clearly hiding their stock so that they can sell it at exorbitant prices to starving Brits after Brexit.

It’s true. I had some cauliflower two nights ago, in Portugal.

Macpaddy - 13 Aug 2019 17:19:15 (#9 of 101)

I'm getting brassica'd off with it.

Bought a very nice cauli today in Aldi, 75p.

I'm OK too:

GOOD

#4 They never amount to much because at the moment we are still part of a pretty stable supply chain system within the EU. Within a few days and weeks sources can be found elsewhere. Once we leave and especially as global warming destabilises established weather/planting/harvesting patterns food security the UK will suffer increasing volatility in food pricing and availability.

At last a brexit benefit!

Macpaddy - 13 Aug 2019 17:36:45 (#16 of 101)

My wife has cooked us cauli 'steaks' for years. Bloody gorgeous they are, too.

YorenInTheNorth - 13 Aug 2019 19:02:37 (#17 of 101)

As long as the Turnip crop is safe.

bossab2 - 13 Aug 2019 19:55:05 (#18 of 101)

Order some from the Yanks.

It should turn up in 10 days time.

TommyDGNR8 - 13 Aug 2019 19:59:27 (#19 of 101)

The CO2 problem was a right pain in the arse for us soft drink fans.

Place your bets on what will get rationed after Brexit.
