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 or call ’em at 540-456-7100.

After our final really hot day for awhile we ended Tuesday with scattered showers and thunderstorms into the early evening hours. A few nearby counties had severe thunderstorm warnings as part if a watch that was issued, but no real severe weather broke out.

After midnight, skies became partly cloudy and winds switched to the northwest.

Today will be noticeably cooler with light NE winds and much less humid conditions and temps in the mid 80’s as opposed to the upper 90’s.

Rain chances are back in the forecast as early as Friday afternoon into Saturday night, but only the scattered variety. Temps remain mild throughout the period.
