Ferrous sulfate, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, disodium guanylate, high fructose corn syrup, Mmmmm, Mmmm, doesn’t that sound yummy, give me another helping now, NOT! Yvette always tells me if it survives in space you probably don’t want to be eating it!

Not worry, you won’t find that kind of stuff at Ken & Yvonne Harris’ a.m. Fog on the Nelson-Albemarle County Line along Route 151 in Afton. They’re as close to the farm as you can get with plenty of fresh meats and vegetables.

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

And yea, they still have my favorite the trusty:
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 OPEN FOR BUSINESS NOW, and soon they’ll be featuring hot teas, coffee, muffins, and bread.

Visit them on the web at or call them at 540-456-7100.

Before we kick off today, want to recognize Nelson Girl Scout Troop #249. They got a chance to head up to Washington this past weekend and see many of the sights there. Click here to see much more on their trip. That’s always an exciting one to make!

Yesterday we talked about how much this place is resembling Seattle lately. Well, Monday didn’t disappoint us! In the photo above the low gray clouds and sometime drizzle held in like the shot on Pharsalia Road looking north back toward Cub Creek. Cool, damp conditions prevailed for most of the day, though a tiny bit of sun did appear for a brief time.

Don’t look for much improvement today either. Though high pressure (which usually means fair weather) is in the area, we have a terribly stubborn easterly flow of moisture from the Atlantic that’s keeping these low gray cloudy skies in place. I do think Tuesday has a better potential to see some limited sun later in the day, but it’s still going to be difficult until we get something in here to kick this nasty lingering mess out.

A series of systems approaching the area will keep some clouds in the area for the next several days, though we do have a window for some sun by mid week before heading back into showery conditions. Most of the models I am looking at right now have cloudy skies well on into next weekend, but they do overplay it many times, so let’s see how the next 48 hours plays out. The second half of the week has great potential to be nice and Spring like, at least if everything pans out.

The one good bit of news is the temperatures. We will begin to see some warming up over the next several days, and right now low and mid 70’s look likely on Thursday and Friday when we have more sun vs clouds.

jan smith 29 dances
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.
