Hey, I know about where this is, I go to Slack's Hoagie Shack just about everytime I'm in Philly, and this is close by! In fact, I'll be coming down Aramingo from the north, I can just turn right onto Cumberland! Whoo hoo! Thanks for the link!

Yes, I've been here for over 20 years, but my folks still live in Frankford. It's really crowded here now, but the beaches are still nice!

diane, cumberland is one way. i thought i could do the same thing, but i couldn't. i turned right onto huntington and left onto gaul and then left onto cumberland.

the place is huge, still a work in progress, but then again, whose yard isn't? i spoke briefly with one of the owners. she said this is their 8th season. i'm surprised i never heard of it. what a great thing to do with what had been waste land. there's a sign stating they are going to start a market stand soon. they are open wendesday through sunday.

plants all looked nice and healthy and there was a good variety. real nice variety of herbs and everything looked so healthy. i went only for a look-see, not ready to buy yet, as i still want to see what my seeds will do.
i'll tell you one thing, their hanging baskets were absolutely gorgeous.

i mentioned to her i saw this posting on garden web - something she had never heard of, but was glad to be getting the pitch.

I didn't get a chance to get there this weekend.
BUT, I definitely will be going as soon as I can.
I will be tempted by those "gorgeous" hanging baskets!!

There are detailed directions on the web site, complete w/maps w/little arrows showing you the way etc.!!

Yeah, I remembered that Cumberland was 1-way after I posted. Thanks for the info, I buzzed in and out of town quickly on Saturday and didn't get over there. Maybe I'll go over for Mother's Day!
