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.

Don’t worry, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you today! Fortunately our Christina Kline was way up north when that picture was taken within the past few days. Christina had some fun in up in Vermont. We won’t be seeing any shots like that around here anytime soon! But thanks for dropping that photo our way Christina and thanks to your mom for snapping that one!

No ice caves here, temps will be warming up nicely with mid and upper 60’s in the valley. An area of disturbed weather will move our way tonight bringing showers back in the forecast late Thursday.

Today’s cut is All Simple Path To Freedom 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.
