Spring’s one week from today so it’s a great time to start thinking about your garden. Ken and Yvonne Harris at a.m. Fog on the Nelson-Albemarle County Line along Route 151 have been getting their plants ready all winter long so you’ll be able to plant this coming Spring.
They specialize in local produce and meats like:
-Hydroponic tomatoes and cucumbers
-On Farm & Locally Grown Lettuce
-Local, organically Raised Farm Eggs
-Local â€œHappy Steerâ€ Hormone and Antibiotic Free Meat
-Local Hormone & Antibiotic Free Chicken
Not to mention all of the other vegetables, annual, and perennial plants along with lots of fruit trees ready for the spring planting! Spring begins on March 20!
And coming soon, that new farm market we just mentioned, featuring hot teas & coffee, muffins, and bread. They’re open now, but be looking for the grand opening of the new and larger farm market in just a few days!
Visit them on the web at www.amfog.net or call them at 540-456-7100.
The Nelson County High Marching Governors Band continues as our highlighted music this week. Very fitting!
Can you believe it? The NCHS Govs Boys Basketball team did it again by winning in the state semi-finals in Richmond by a score of 48 to 42 against Twin Valley. Our Hayley Osborne was there taking shots of all of the action! There will be lots more pics up later today! Congrats to the Govs and good luck on your next game this coming Saturday back in Richmond at VCU!

Wednesday started out with a few clouds but quickly became sunny. Winds were chilly out of the north for the morning hours, but shifted southerly by afternoon warming up temperatures nicely.
Thursday will be a spectacular day with afternoon temperatures easily making it into the mid 60’s in most areas. We may even see the temps rise to near 70Â° in a few locations. Unlike yesterday, winds will become breezy today from the south around 10-20 MPH in the afternoon.
On Friday rains chances reenter the forecast, with more organized showers Saturday. Since temperatures will be fairly mild Friday, it’s not out of the question to have an isolated clap of thunder here or there.
Those showers continue on Saturday. By Saturday night the rain may briefly mix with snow before ending Sunday morning. Temps cool a bit over the weekend before rebounding nicely back into the 60’s next week.

The Nelson County High Marching Governors Band takes us out with Hey Baby
from their 2006-2007 CD.
Have a great Thursday everyone!
Here’s some additional info Taylor sent along about the band:
Our Show this past year was featuring music from Styx. In the show, there was a drum break where the whole band danced, I actually recorded it and put it on youtube.com In that video they had just learned the dance about 30 minutes before that. Thats how good these kids are!
The Band begins in the summer at the end of July and the beginning of August for Band Camp which is usually about 2 weeks long for some of them. The days go from 8am-5pm, then once school starts its 2 hours after school 3 days a week, 4 days a week when we have a game or competition. So a lot of practice on the field and off the field goes into our show. Then our completions we travel all over. We have been locally to Staunton, Stuarts Draft, and Amherst. Then we go all the way to Harrisonburg to JMU and we then went to Richmond. In previous years we have been the Danville, Lynchburg, and 3 years ago we had the chance to travel to Disney World and march down towards the castle. We also perform yearly at the Christmas Parade in Lovingston. All this is usually done from the end of July to the Beginning of December. Marching Band is our biggest ensemble of the year. Let me know if you have any questions, I think I covered all of our bases.
Here are our results from our competitions this past year:
The Nelson County High School Marching Governors concluded their season with a competition at Mills E. Godwin High School in Richmond Virginia.
2nd Place Drum Major Frankie Walton
