Damn. That's going to make my favourite dessert of rice pudding with prunes very expensive.

Maybe when the weather improves, the price will plummet?

Prunes are shriveled plums, so they should be as cheap as chips now!

Chips are expensive due to the increase in potato prices.

Don't tell me, the weather was too cold, then we had rain so the farmers say it's too wet, then we had too much sun and they all dried up etc.
