UK supermarkets and stores have recently decided that perhaps it might not be such a bad idea to lower their standards a tad, at least when it comes to how “sassy” the vegetables they purchase from local farmers need to be.
This is because, as a result of the poor growing conditions (i.e. the bad weather) they were faced with, the vegetables in this part of the world pretty much failed to meet farmers' and supermarkets' owners expectations in terms of plumpness.
Daily Mail says that Morrison's promised that it would buy whatever ugly vegetables the farmers had to sell, provided, of course, that their taste and nutritional value remained unaffected by the bad weather.
“The weather has been against us though; with wet soil and low light some of the plants haven’t formed roots and have smaller leaves than usual,” explained the Chairman of the Brassica Growers Association, Matther Rawson.
Seeing how ongoing phenomena such as climate change and global warming are expected to soon enough impact on crops worldwide, it is quite likely that human society will at one point be forced to see the inner beauty of the fruits and vegetables that make it on their plates.
