Honor Eggs Are Back

We’ve closed up the farmstand until next spring, but our well-fed chickens lay eggs all winter long and we still have some winter produce as well. So until we reopen, the honor fridge and cashbox are once again located outside the farmstand exit. Come by any time to pick up farm-fresh Morning Glory eggs and winter produce, and eat gloriously!

Morning Glory Farm eggs are fresh year-round.

Old Pics: Woods Hole in 1945

The Woods Hole, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Steamship Authority has been in the news a lot lately. Quite by coincidence, we recently ran across this vintage photo of the Woods Hole terminal in 1945. Note the railway!

And here is a recent drone shot (looking in the opposite direction) of the terminal undergoing reconstruction:

We don’t know what the new terminal will look like in the end, several years from now, because the SSA is still negotiating with Woods Hole neighbors and Falmouth officials over the size and height of a new ticket office. But it’s safe to assume it will be different from both the 1940s building and the one built a few years later, which was demolished to make way for the latest reconstruction.

What Woods Hole memories do you have? What are your hopes for the new terminal? We’d love to read what you have to say in the comments section below.
