Garden #1 Cranberry Bog View

Highlights are: a she-shed with overflowing window boxes, an Angel Trumpet tree, strawberries in an unusual resting place, various cages over raised beds to keep out the groundhogs, and five different varieties of hydrangea (‘Abracadabra’, ‘Endless Summer’ and ‘PeeGee’ among them).
Directions: Take Exit 3 off Rte 6, Head north on Quaker Meeting House Road to cross over 6A onto Spring Hill Road. Take the first right off Spring Hill Rd into Norse Pines. #5 is second house on left adjacent to cranberry bog.       Park in front of the house or in front of the wooded lot next door.

June 18, 2016 by Beth Colt

Creative arts and fresh local produce in the heart of Woods Hole village every weekend from June through October.

Woods Hole has all the feel of a Cape Cod fishing village, and is still home port to a commercial fleet.  It is full of world-renowned scientific institutions such as the Marine Biological Laboratory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

It is at the end of the Shining Sea Bicycle Path and is the way to Martha’s Vineyard.  With lots of fine dining as well, Woods Hole is visited by many during the summer.

If you are here on a weekend we hope you will drop in to the Market, located in the Old Fire Station Building next to the Community Hall on Water Street.

And, if it’s a bright day, you might be greeted by a pirate captain at his table of treasures from the deep, as you cross the bridge !
