維州掀起自種蔬菜潮流 萵苣幼苗銷量激增

超市蔬菜價格飆漲之際,維州最近掀起在自家後院種蔬菜的潮流,萵苣種子和幼苗銷售量激增。

據《時代報》(The Age)報導,墨爾本的一些苗圃經營者表示,現在消費者主要把後院作為綠色蔬菜的來源,暫不打算從商店購買,因此對蔬菜種子和幼苗的需求激增。

位於墨爾本東北區Warrandyte的Beasley苗圃的經理Mel Hossack說:「無論你現在想買什麼菜種,我都會去進貨。」

Hossack表示,在過去幾周期間,萵苣苗和種子的銷售量至少翻了一番,但是進貨卻越來越難了,Beasley的產品很快就要賣完,上周日下午3點的時候,該中心只剩下5棵卷心生菜菜苗了。

由於種植者需求旺盛,多家苗圃在未來幾個月內可能會很難從供應商那裡買到菜苗。

Brunswick東部CERES苗圃的採購員Jacqui Evans說,她的苗圃萵苣銷量上升幅度很大,以至於他們目前已經很難從供應商那裡獲得萵苣苗了。

「客戶說,在可能的情況下,自己種植是一個好主意。現在隨着價格和供應量減少,自己種植顯得更為重要。」

Bunnings公司商品部總經理Adrian Pearce說:「在整個封城期間,我們確實看到顧客自己種植蔬菜的興趣大增,而且最近普通菜苗的銷量在進一步上升,(自種)萵苣越來越受歡迎。」

Greenery的高級園藝師Kevin Parker說,在整個一年中,自己種植蔬菜總是很受歡迎。「我們沒有注意到,一定是由於萵苣的價格上漲了,所以我們的銷售量增加了。」

Boronia的Knox社區花園的會員負責人John Faulkner說,雖然他沒有看到種植萵苣增加,但萵苣和其他蔬菜的價格一直是會員們談論的焦點。

「我們有些成員非常自鳴得意地說,『這不是很好嗎,因為我們自己種的,所以價格上漲對我們沒有影響』。」

Pentridge社區花園的委員會成員Katya Dibb注意到,成員們種植的萵苣有很多,但她說,這似乎更多是由COVID-19封鎖措施所引起,而不是因為商店售價上漲。

「我認為人們不太願意去超市,所以如果他們可以從社區花園或自己的菜園裡得到想要的東西,他們就更願意這樣做。」

澳大利亞國立大學氣候、能源和災害解決方案研究所所長Mark Howden教授說,家庭菜園和社區菜園對於那些想在條件有限的情況下幫助他們獲得食物的人來說是一個不錯的選擇。

Howden說:「這不僅關係到食品安全,也關係到良好的營養,還能教育你的孩子了解食物的來源。」
