I was chatting with Ken Harris of a.m. Fog on the phone recently and he told me about one of the neatest things that’s just happened over at their place on the Albermarle / Nelson line along Route 151. Yea, we all know them for their great nursery and greenhouse products, but now they are also carrying one of Nelson’s favorite and award winning wines from Delfosse Vineyard & Winery at Faber, Virginia over near Hickory Creek.
And later this month they begin “Thirsty Third Thursdays” wine tasting, at a.m. Fog, that starts Thursday July 31st 4-8 PM. The event continues on into the fall.
And yea, we told you first about Homestead Creamery milk a few weeks ago. That’s available in the farm market at a.m. Fog. This is the real thing in those familiar glass bottles. It gets delivered fresh every Wednesday!
And to celebrate a.m. Fog’s 5 years in business, all trees & shrubs are 50% off. Folks this won’t happen again until their 10 year anniversary, so get ’em while you can.
Yvonne says, new shipments of corn arrive every Tuesday and Friday plus they’re picking loads of green beans, cukes, zukes, & squash. Tomatoes & peppers are just starting to come in along with ORGANICALLY grown and conventional peaches too. Cantaloupes are on sale this week 1.79 each or 2 for 5.00…now that’s a deal!
You can always visit them on the web at www.amfog.net or call ’em at 540-456-7100

Thanks to Ann Strober for the beautiful pic of the sun setting behind the mountains here in Nelson County. As always, Ann sends us some really great photos. And by-the-way look for a neat photo or two she shot that will appear in our August issue of NCL magazine, that will start hitting the shelves in just a few days!
We have ended the week with some really, really good weather, with even a hint of Fall at night! Lot’s of folks saw very cool temps Thursday into Friday morning. By the weekend those chances for afternoon and evening thunderstorms come back in the forecast. But temperatures stay fairly nice with readings in the mid to upper 80’s maybe near 90Â° but no upper 90’s on the horizon.
A final footnote, Dolly is now a tropical depression and continues to weaken as it moves over land.
