Ok, maybe I didn’t just grow up eating peanut butter. Actually my mom used to cook up a roast at the start of the week and I’d take these cold roast beef sandwiches to schooll for lunch everyday. Don’t think I had a school lunch until I was in high school! But you know I never worried about what I was eating, not once. You shouldn’t either and you don’t have to.

Ken and Yvonne Harris at a.m. Fog on the Nelson – Albemarle County line just off Route 151 carry all of the good food you’ll be confident in serving your family. No, it’s not that roast beef my mom used to fix up, but it might as well be!

Right now they’ve got; Asparagus, Lettuce, Cucumbers, STRAWBERRIES, strawberry onions (the best!!!), roasting potatoes, Idaho potatoes, carrots, green peppers, farm eggs, meat, & fresh baked bread.

And yea, they still have my favorite:
Local “Happy Steer” 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 is here!

And have you seen that new beautiful farm market going up, they are just days from opening, they’ll be 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 or call them at 540-456-7100.

Easter Sunday ended up being a really nice day with enough high pressure in place to keep the clouds out for much of the afternoon. We were cooler than the first half of the weekend but still pretty comfortable. Overall it was really nice. Easter also marks the official end of the winter skiing season up at Wintergreen Resort. That’s the time they always hold their yearly Splash and Dash or Pond Skimming, as it’s known. In our weather photos above, Christina Kline, grabbed this shot of Courtesy Patrol Supervisor and Ski Patroller Paul Whitehead of Lovigston headed across the pond. You can see many more of the photos from Saturday’s event taken by Paul Purpura by clicking here. There’s some really good ones!

Overnight some folks got a tiny reminder that winter isn’t done just yet. Some light snow began falling in parts of Central Virginia. Today we can’t rule out that some snow showers will be falling, especially above 2000 feet. Even a dusting is possible in some locations, but don’t cancel any plans. This won’t be much, if anything, and it certainly won’t hang around for long either. We’ll have a combination of sun and clouds with intermittent rain or snow in between.

As the week goes on, we dry out and warm up nicely feeling more spring like. Much of the week will be in the mid 60’s and by Friday look for temps to be near 70 degrees.

One of our all time favorites heard here at NCL, Robin Wynn, takes us out with Swing from her Oblivion CD.

Have a great Monday everyone!

You can check out and buy all of Robin’s latest CD releases here.

Whether playing solo, or accompanied by her six-piece band, Robin Wynn’s shows are marked with high energy and good spirits, with her distinctive, smooth-like-honey/sharp-as-a-tack vocals cresting the wave. With her ear for hooks, Robin writes music you swear you’ve heard before, yet is always unique and fresh, often drawing comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams at her most “Americana,” Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) and Liz Phair at her rockingest.

A hard-working bunch of players, Robin and her band performed over a hundred shows up and down the east coast in 2006, gathering enthusiasts at every stop. Bandmates include Lea Calvani (Dirty Dishes) on percussion and vocals, John Allietta (Thrum, Naked Puritans) on drums, Clayton Avent (Six Day Bender) on cello and guitar, Blake Wheeler (Bleak, Goldenhour) on bass and vocals, and Mark Goldstein on guitar, keyboards, and vocals.

Spring 2007 marks the release of Robin Wynn’s latest studio achievement “A Few Dusty Miles,” a full-length CD of eleven new songs which includes such favorites from her recent tour dates as the sultry ballad “Bottle,” the quirky half-time rag “Sweet Sally,” and “Soldier,” an instant pop classic that will stay in your head for days – and is also available to listen on her page at
