We import 95% of our seed potatoes from Scotland, Brexit has been causing all sorts of issues with it, next year should be fun.

A ship carrying a cargo of 33,000 tonnes of Ukrainian grain is due to dock at the port of Foynes in Co Limerick this afternoon.

yay!

The ship, laden with grain for animal use, left the port of Odesa two weeks ago.

boo!

if anyone has any spare cash at the end of the week please send it to Pakistani relief.
this is not the first time this has happened. there was also dire flooding in Pakistan in 2010 which affected 20 million people and emergency appeals at that time weren't well supported.

this actually came up on a program my wife was watching last night - alex politti was in puglia at a vineyard, and they said they produce 8000l of wine per Ha, or 6000 bottles (so i suspect there was something lost in translation there, should be the other way around?).
anyway, the average in europe seems to be a litre of wine for every 2 sqm, give or take.

just as a random comparison, 2sqm of land in ireland (and i know we're comparing apples and oranges) would produce about 100g of beef.
