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!

You can always visit them on the web at www.amfog.net or call ’em at 540-456-7100.

The temperature crept back up just a bit Thursday making the 90° mark here in the valley. Just warm enough for a little ice cream. Heidi Crandall found, Jack Silby of Appomattox, sharing his ice cream cone with his dog Rusty over at the Collen Drive In. That’s a great place to get ice cream for sure! Wish I was Rusty this once!

Like I just said Thursday warmed up a bit and some of the humidity returned that’s been gone for much of the week. Friday will be about the same and the chances for thunderstorms previously forecast, look like they’ll hold off for a few hours until Saturday. Though I can’t rule out a stray thunderstorm in the afternoon Friday, they will be isolated in nature.

With humid conditions back in place and an approaching cold front Saturday, a few of those storms in the afternoon could become strong. Not everyone gets rain Saturday, but a few will.

After the storms end Saturday night we quickly go back to partly sunny conditions with temps in the mid 80’s. Daytime highs cool to the upper 70’s by mid week.
