AM Fog New BLdg
The new farm market at a.m. Fog in Afton.

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.

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

This past weekend turned out to be a great one in spite of some rain showers that moved in Saturday night. Mainly the southern portion of Nelson saw rainfall, everyone else stayed pretty dry. A perfect weekend to be out and enjoy the weather.

I am traveling this week, so the weathercast will be abbreviated until next week when we will resume the normal audio cast. I will be watching the weather closely while traveling, and will do updates remotely over the course of the week when possible.

For the coming week we start off the week mild and dry with temps in the 70’s valley slightly cooler above. Rain is in the forecast by Wednesday night.
