Sheffield, England -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/22/2017 -- Bad weather in Europe has resulted in a vegetable shortage, with people across the UK now finding it much more difficult to get their hands on food items such as iceberg lettuces, courgettes, broccoli, tomatoes, salad peppers, aubergines and more. This shortage is anticipated to continue until at least April, and in line with this the BBC has recently revealed some alternatives for shoppers and consumers, these included but are by no means limited to the following:

Go native – In the past people would not have been surprised that these vegetables were not available in the supermarkets; in fact it would have been considered normal. People could consider eating more wintery vegetables instead, such as Brussels sprouts and cauliflowers.

Be inventive – People can use this time and as opportunity to experiment, trying other vegetables in meals that they would otherwise not choose, for example – a ceaser salad using kale instead of lettuce can be really tasty.

Grow your own – People can still grow their own vegetables using a range of growing methods including conventional methods and hydroponic methods.

A spokesperson from a leading UK based hydroponics equipment supplier was incredibly keen to comment saying, "Here at Green Spirit Hydroponics we believe that people should where possible grow their own vegetables, not only during vegetable shortages, but all year round. Growing your own veggies can be highly advantageous and can provide people with the freshest supply of vegetables possible at all times, especially when hydroponic set-ups are utilised which can create the utmost, perfect growing conditions.
