In their produce report Yvonne says, they are currently fresh picking sweet cherries, raspberries, and mushrooms; no spray – chemical free – just what nature and fish emulsion gives us. Which begs the question… What’s in your food??? You have to be careful about what you feed yourself and your kids these days, been paying attention to the news lately?

And just across the road at Blue Mountain Brewery they’re serving a cherry/chocolate/goat cheese crumble made with amFOG cherries. Now that is yummy!

When you meet folks like Ken and Yvonne you just can’t help but like ’em. They’re the real deal.

And they want to thank you for making this a spectacular spring! They’re looking forward to a stellar growing season and bumper crops from the fields. Things are changing all the time at amFOG…keep your ears open and stop in to see ’em.

Today’s weather photo is from the opening of Starry Nights this past weekend at Veritas Winery and Vineyard. In spite of the rain that fell just before the kick off the crowd adapted and the night went off smoothly. The light rain moved out and the evening ended with lots of dancing and music late into the night. Be sure to make next month’s event on July 12 when Abbey Road (The Beatles Cover Band) will be there. We went to that one last year and it was a blast!

Brrrrrr, did you feel the chill in the air overnight last night? After a mild day Tuesday with afternoon readings in the lower 80’s and even 60’s on the mountains, we dropped down in the 50’s and lower 40’s on the mountains for overnight lows. Some stations were almost at the upper 30’s!

Look for the mild weather to continue today right on into the weekend, but we do have a chance for some scattered showers or even a thunderstorm this afternoon. A developing area of very weak low pressure could help trigger a storm or two, but more or less not a big deal.

The rest of the week looks dry and mild until the weekend when summertime afternoon thundershowers reappear.
