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!

The week ended and the first day of summer will kick off with more mild weather leaving behind that streak of 90 and 100 degree weather from a few days ago. Though we won’t see temps that warm in the coming days, we will begin to heat up slightly. Thursday was a bit warmer than earlier this week. By the end of next week we’ll be back in the real summer weather with temps returning to the 90’s.
Should be a nice Saturday to go over to the Nelson Farmers Market in Nellysford. Above, Foxie Morgan, displays some of the cherries from her place over at Pharsalia. There’s tons of new produce coming in all of the time now, so be sure to check it out this weekend!
We will see a return of humidity this weekend as the winds become more southerly bringing in more moisture. That gives us just enough fuel combined with daytime heating to fire those scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms across the area. These won’t ruin the weekend, but there will be some scattered around, becoming more numerous Sunday afternoon.
High pressure takes over next week and skies remain mostly sunny with temps near 90Â° by next Friday.
