Pigeon Cove Ferments was born at home in “Pigeon Cove”, a small neighborhood in the quiet North Shore town of Rockport, Massachusetts. My husband Dylan and I live in his childhood home with our young son, Ronin. We spend our free time bringing this beautiful old house back to life, gardening, keeping chickens and slowly building a homestead. We have a small greenhouse, large garden and many raised beds that we tend to. Finding we were always left with an abundance of produce that would otherwise go to waste, we started canning and fermenting as a way to reap the benefits of our hard work and preserve food to sustain us through the long New England winters.

Science Says Flossing Is A Total Waste Of Time

NY PostThe evidence for flossing is “weak, very unreliable,” of “very low” quality, and carries “a moderate to large potential for bias.” The majority of available studies fail to demonstrate that flossing is generally effective in plaque removal,” said one review conducted last year. Another 2015 review cites “inconsistent/weak evidence” for flossing and a “lack of efficacy.”

Many thanks to Paul Morrison and his sister Kathy. Paul called a few days ago with the very generous offer to show me the osprey nest on the Annisquam, spotted by Kathy, about half a mile from the Marina, and best seen by boat. On the way to see the nest, we spied the Oliver Hazard Perry just beginning to make its way into Gloucester Harbor. Paul, again very generously, suggested we detour out to see the arriving tall ship. And it is a beauty! The Oliver Hazard Perry will be in Gloucester Harbor for one night only however, look for its return in September, when it will remain in Gloucester a few days. I believe, at that time, folks will be able to tour the boat!

Representing Gloucester

IMG_1212

Normally, I don’t wear advertising; however, when it is swag from good friends at Cape Pond Ice, Neptune’s Harvest, Schooner Adventure, and GMG, I make an exception, especially when on vacation cruising Penobscot Bay proud to represent my city.

Last week in the town of Northeast Harbor on Mount Desert Island there was a chance meeting of the crews from three Gloucester sailing vessels: Arts and Letters from Anninsquam, Mugup from Smith Cove, and my own Pensive Flyer from Magnolia. Our gam blocked the sidewalk on Main Street for quite a while as we discussed possible destinations and anchorages. It is a fine thing to be a small part of our community of sailors.
