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!

Before we head off into weather, want to remind you about a big announcement coming next week from our sponsor, a.m. Fog….. We though we’d have the information to share with you this weekend, but looks like it will be next week, but this is something folks in the area are going to be very happy about! Listen in Monday to hear what the buzz is all about!
We wind up our music this weekend from the 2007-2008 NCHS Jazz Band CD. Thanks to those folks for getting a CD to us and letting us share it with you for this past week. Stick around to hear much more from them in just a few minutes.
And thanks to our Paul Purpura of Wintergreen for perfectly capturing the feel of the past several days as the temperatures have been heating up. It will be a great weekend to be around and in the water in between thunderstorms that form.
We ended the week hot! And we’ll stay hot until a round of thunderstorms gets our of the area early next week. Expect temperatures to be in the mid and upper 90’s across the entire area. The humidity will be on the upswing as well making it feel very muggy for the first part of the weekend. By Sunday we moderate a little with highs in the mid 80’s.
Thunderstorms will become more numerous as we head into the weekend with the best chances late Saturday afternoon into Sunday. Some storms this weekend may become severe, so keep an eye out if you are outdoors and keep a check here for the latest weather bulletins.
