Brassica feels the wind of change

Ah, January. The Christmas rush is over and marketers can take a well-earned breather. But not everyone has plenty of time to kale next month. Some people have to start planning for next Christmas.

Which is presumably why the Brassica Growers Association has scheduled its conference for January 14. While the rest of us are cabbaged in front of our computer screens, idly deleting spam with one hand and spilling coffee with the other, the nation’s proud farmers will be gathered deep in the heart of near-the-M40-shire, debating ways to fill the huge hole left in the nation’s sprout stocks by the willy-nilly gannetry of Christmas dinner-munchers.

So, if you’re feeling melancauli after the holidays, spare a thought for those hard-working souls, and their rallying cry… “Who hasn’t farted?”
