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 www.amfog.net or call ’em at 540-456-7100.

Thanks again to Henri & Elaine Weems of Rodes Farm for today’s cloudy and colorful sunset over Pilot Mountain. They grabbed this shot from the weekend when the thunderstorms were around the area.
We’ll start the day today with mostly sunny skies, but scattered thunderstorms and variably cloud skies move in for the afternoon. Unsettled weather with scattered thunderstorms remain in the forecast until Friday. Temperatures and the humidity will be in the rise all week into the weekend.
