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.

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.
