    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 “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 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.

    Saturday clouds increased with thunderstorms by late afternoon. Though we will get a bit of a lull in the rain Sunday with temps still fairly mild at around 70° in the valley. Sunday night showers start up again. We really don’t get out of the rain making business until sometime around Tuesday. Temps will also cool next week to the mid 60’s for daytime highs.
