Today’s weather and is brought to you exclusively by:
am fog 4.16.08-A

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!

This has been the hottest weather of the year so far. On Saturday at 2:46 PM we reached the 100° mark here at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine in the Rockfish Valley. The mountains were even hovering near 90° for part of the afternoon.

I would not be surprised if some locations again crack the century mark Sunday.

It’s going to be humid too, so the heat index will easily make it into the low 100’s for the next few days.

Though there’s always a tiny chance for an afternoon thunderstorm when it gets this hot, the chances are very slim over the next several days and will be the exception rather than the rule as high pressure control the weather.

Milder weather and a break in the heat arrive mid-week with a chance for more organized thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon.
