Do you like saving money? Yea, me too! Ken and Yvonne Harris at a.m. Fog on the Nelson-Albemarle County Line in Afton make it easy for you, while you get quality garden products. Right now Ken tells me they have all annual plants in stock marked off by 25%. WOW! 25% (PAUSE) Now that’s some real money!

And the no spray cherries are ready! Yvonne says this was a bumper crop and they have plenty!

And of course all the other Spinach, (we just planted ours from a.m. Fog) kale, brocoli, cabbage and veggie start, along with 6 kinds of lettuce and 26 types of heirloom tomatoes and sweet or HOT peppers are just some of what you’ll find at their new farm market right on Route 151. They even have pineapple and watermelons to boot!

Then there’s asparagus. Yvette loves it grilled with just a touch of olive oil, pepper and salt! Mmm, mm. Then there’s , meat, and fresh baked bread along with a so many other vegetables I can even list them all.

The beautiful new farm market is OPEN FOR BUSINESS NOW!

You can always visit them on the web at or call ’em at 540-456-7100.

Thanks big time to our faithful reader Ann Strober of Nellysford for today’s weather pic. Now that is a nice one and any weather geeks like me can appreciate that kind of a shot. Ann has captured a perfect cumulonimbus forming in that picture. If you’re a country boy like me, you remember calling them thunderheads.

This past weekend we saw a few of them, but the possibility of severe weather never panned out here in Nelson, though we briefly went under a tornado watch Saturday afternoon and evening. Most folks stayed dry for the entire weekend. The big story was the heat and humidity, it finally began feeling like summer in Virginia.

Today will be a mostly sunny day, and a little less sticky feeling as northerly winds brings in drier air. We’ll still make it to the 80’s but just less humid.

The rest of the week is a bit unsettled, but not a complete washout. High pressure that brings nice weather today will weaken as another frontal system approaches, then stalls mid week, keeping the chances for thunderstorms in the forecast for much of the extended period. It won’t rain all of the time, but chances are better over the next several days after today. Temperatures remain in the 80’s through the period.
