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.

After a cool night, Wednesday was another very pleasant day. Perfect weather for the start of the portable skateboard park at Rockfish River Elementary. It’s on loan through The Nelson County Parks and Recreation Department from the Augusta Parks Dept. through this weekend. The folks over at have been working to get a permanent skatepark here.

One of the many that turned out Wednesday afternoon to give it a try.

The park will be there Thurs & Fri 4-8 pm & Sat 9-12 if you want to go on by!

The nice weather will continue today with a slight chance of scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Again, like yesterday, most everyone will stay dry.

Look for mild temps to continue with slightly better chances for rain by the weekend, but again very widely scattered in nature and most folks will remain dry.
