Let’s see, $3.25 a gallon X a 15 gallon tank = $48.75 ! Wow, that’s just to fill up. Making that long trip to a city grocery is costing lots more these days, not to mention the worries over just where your food is coming from. You don’t have to worry over at Ken & Yvonne Harris’ a.m Fog on Route 151 at the Nelson-Albemarle County Line. They are as close to the farm as you can get!

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.

A few folks got a winter surprise Monday morning. As we talked might happen in the Monday forecast, snow fell on the mountains here in Nelson County. John Taylor sent us some pics of the light covering of an inch or so at locations above 2000 feet like Wintergreen. The snow didn’t do anything to really mess up travel, but was a reminder we still have a few lingering weeks of some winter like weather left before warmer temps move until next fall. And a warm up is exactly what we’ll be talking about as we go along in today’s cast.

First, want to mention what a nice time they had Monday night over at Delfosse Winery & Vineyard. Lots of familiar faces got together and recreated the Big Night Dinner! And boy did they! You’ll be reading more about what they did in the coming weeks, but the pictures above are a tiny preview!

Though they were all inside over at Delfosse last night, the evening was a nice one to cap off a day of mixed precipitation. Folks in the valley saw some snow too, but way warm to stick. Some light rain fell late in the day, but just a smattering.

Things are about to change after one more fairly cool day. By this afternoon our winds will start kicking around more southerly for a trend toward warmer temps. We do have a chance for some light showers again by Wednesday night into Thursday, but temperatures begin feeling a lot nicer. We’ll be near 70° on Wednesday and again on Friday. No dramatic cool downs are on the horizon for several days.

Today’s cut is All James River from the CD 29 Dances.

Louisville, Kentucky native Jan Smith writes songs rooted in vibrant imagery and sincere, stark emotion. The artists whose music she grew up with — Merle Haggard, Nina Simone, and Townes Van Zant among many others – influence her work, as does the traditional bluegrass music of her new home in the mountains of central Virginia.

On April 4, 2006, Landslide Records released “29 Dances,” produced in Nashville by Bil VornDick (Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley). The record features Johnny Hiland, Byron House (Sam Bush, Nickel Creek), Pat McInerney (Nanci Griffith), Randy Kohrs, David Talbot (the Grascals), Mark Fain (Ricky Skaggs), Robert Bowlin (Bill Monroe), Patty Mitchell, and Smith’s partner, Jeff Vogelgesang.
