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 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 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 www.amfog.net or call them at 540-456-7100.

Thursday ended up being a pretty nice day with most of the rain staying to our north. Some folks saw a few very light sprinkles, but overall it was a dry and fairly pleasant.
Friday will be even warmer than Thursday with some locations skirting, if not making the 80Â° mark. Don’t get to use to it though, we’ll be diving about 20-25 degrees for a high on Saturday & Sunday. But it’s an indicator that warmer weather is certainly just around the corner. We’ll also see chances for rain and even some scattered thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening before skies become partly cloudy Friday night.
By the weekend partly to mostly sunny skies prevail with cool temps for daytime highs. By early next week showers move back in with highs generally in the 60’s valley and upper 50’s to lower 60’s mountains.
