Potato Crops

Post by portlanders on Mon Aug 27, 2012 6:24 pm

Word Up - My farmer friend in Dorset has just finished harvesting his maincrop potatoes, and he says it's the worse yield in his living memory. Prepare for higher prices in the shops if this is replicated across the country.

It's the same with apples, the trees are bare.

Just because there are no chips it won't be an excuse for a blank!

at least it was an original excuse lol!

Apparantly there is a sign up in a local chippy explaining for the price rise in chips, so it's happening already. Wonder if i could strike a deal with all the excess cod i'll be catching this year Laughing

Sorry to hear that Roy, but looks like it's the same for everyone.
