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!

Monday was another very hot day with about everyone in the valley just a few degrees off of the 100° mark. We were at 99° again and with the exception of NCL-TWNF on the mountain everyone was easily in the upper 90’s. Even on the mountain they were a very warm 87°.

Today will be our last hot day for the foreseeable future with mid 90’s and chances for organized thunderstorms. There is the chance some of these storms could become strong to severe as the day wears on particularly into the late afternoon and evening hours.

Once the cold front swings through the area, conditions quickly improve on Wednesday with sunny skies, milder temps, and much less humidity by the end of the day. The remainder of the week looks mostly dry and comfortable with temps in the mid 80’s. There is a chance for showers again by the weekend on Sunday.
