Forecast By Tommy Stafford – Nelson County Life Magazine
OK, thanks “internets” for the 2nd time this week, we can’t upload audio, so a generic text version. We’ll have a custom forecast back up later today.
Don’t you just love it when you see folks doing something good…No I mean really good. moving some place, taking a leap of faith, and doing in their heart what they know’s right. That’s Ken and Yvonne Harris. They’ve made Afton and the Rockfish Valley their home. Heck, they’re already raising the next generation of Harris’ now. Farming and farming right is the way they do things.
At 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 tell me right now they have veggie start, 6 kinds of lettuce. spinach, kale, brocoli, cabbage. And soon they’ll have 26 types of heirloom tomatoes, sweet peppers, and a big selection of HOT HOT HOT HOT, did I say HOT, YIKES! peppers!
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 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 fruit trees ready for the spring planting! It’s time!
That new beautiful farm market is OPEN FOR BUSINESS NOW, and before long stop in for hot teas, coffee, muffins, and bread while you take a look around.

Danny Schmidt is an award-winning & versatile songwriter, his writing includes “heartbreaking love songs followed by biting philosophical commentary, plain-strummed ballads followed by virtuoso fingerpicking.” (Orchard Distribution). His musical style draws from mountain barroom gospel and English balladry, syncopated Piedmont country blues with a dash of 60â€™s protest folk.
Austin may claim Danny Schmidt for its own, but his career as a performing & recording artist began in Charlottesville, with his first CD, Live from the Prism Coffeehouse, released in 1999. Schmidt returned to Charlottesville to record his fifth & latest album, Little Grey Sheep, produced by Paul Curreri. Also appearing on Little Grey Sheep are Charlottesville musicians Randall Pharr on bass, Matty Metcalfe on accordion, Jeff Romano on harmonica, Sara Read on fiddle, Spencer Lathrop on drums and vocalist Joia Wood.
The songs included in Little Grey Sheep were written over a span of seven years. Says Schmidt: “Each has a very personal meaning for me, and each came from a very particular episode in my life …whereas the songs I was putting on those other records were more narrative and generalized and abstract.”
Danny Schmidt will perform solo at the Hamner, his heartfelt realism guaranteeing an intense live performance, well-suited to this intimate venue. â€œIt’s honest, bare bones storytelling at it’s bestâ€ (Tori Mazur, Music Beyond Radio).
The Hamner Theater is in Nelson County, between Afton & Nellysford. Tickets, by reservation only, are $15, which includes food. Doors open at 6:30pm; Food is served from 6:30pm.
