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: “SWEET CHERRIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For about 3 weeks only, we started picking Sat 31st. Get them while they last! Completely NO SPRAY. 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.

Want to continue to remind you of some new widgets on our site lately. We can change them up depending on the weather, so check there anytime the weather is looking bad or if you just want a quick look at the radar! They are right there to the left.
Ann Strober keeps knocking it out of the park this week with those weather shots! Another mean looking storm cloud she got in Nellysford! Thanks again Ann!
The past day or so has been chocked full of lightning and thunder. Early yesterday morning, then again around dark last night we had rounds of thunderstorms with some of them reaching severe limits. Twice over the past couple of days we ended up under tornado watches as well.
Today we’ll still have the chance for some strong to severe thunderstorms, but the trend will be for less of them. We’ll still have the scattered afternoon and evening variety, but less of the organized ones.
The big story for the next few days will be the very, very hot temperatures. We will be reaching the mid 90’s easily a couple of times in the extended outlook.
