Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Even before coming to such extremes, it looks like domestic food will become more expensive without much relief from imported food that will be more expensive too.

Net effect: Most people will have to spend a higher - sometimes much higher - share of their income for food. Other expenses will have to be cut, such has vacation jaunts in the Canaries or Ibiza, not to mention farther flung destinations. Easy Jet and other carriers will suffer along with Cook, Thomson and other travel businesses.

Looks like a more frugal life ahead, like it was for most Britons in the 1950s and 60s...

Another way is to mostly eat chips.

Due to ridiculous land prices, gardens are generally handkerchief sized.

And the poorer and more likely to be needy the person, the smaller the amount of land likely to be available to them. Growing some herbs on a window ledge may be the realistic option
