Goose Cove Gardens: Rhubarb now, tomatoes soon

Jan Walker told me about this place. How is there a beautiful nursery practically tucked behind the Willow Rest that I didn’t know about? (Take Stanwood or Gee Ave off of Washington before you get to Willow Rest and go up to 24 Gee Avenue.) Probably because I was not in the market for a nursery all these years.

Now I am. We picked up a nice rhubarb plant as well as some annuals for Mother's Day.

And although we have tomato sets we are growing from seed we might have to stop by on May 26 “Tomato Release Day” to pick up a few more to fill out the tomato garden.

I have never seen such an assortment of really healthy looking plants. Since it looks as if all are grown right there the sets look to be more than hardy enough to take a Cape Ann summer.

Trifecta: Go to Willow Rest and pick up a Cuban (the sandwich!). Take Gee or Stanwood and go right to Dogtown for a hike built around lunch. Then on the way back go to the other end of Gee Ave and pick up some plants.


  • We bought rose bushes there last year. They really helped us by giving directions on fertilizer, etc. The rose bushes are so full this year, I can’t wait for them to start blooming.


  • Great place great people. You can even get on there mailing list to find out what they have ready for sale.
