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!

Thanks to faithful reader and photographer, Judy Serkes, of Woods Mills for today’s beautiful weather shot. A perfect ending to a wonderful day in Nelson County!
Yesterday was warm, almost hot, but a nice northerly wind blowing in behind a passing cold front kept it comfortable and with less humidity, it felt very nice.
Today will be a shade warmer and we’ll slowly begin to feel the humidity work back in as winds become more southerly for the remainder of the week.
By Thursday night, thunderstorms return to the forecast right through the weekend, with the best chances for storms late Saturday into Sunday. Just like last weekend, not everyone will see rain, but those that do can expect some heavy downpours.
Temperatures remain hot through the period from the mid 80’s to the lower 90’s.
