Thank both.

Slight change to Robert's answer, to make it idempotent so it's not an updated resource on every run:

execute "enable ssh" do 
  command "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setremotelogin on"
  not_if "/usr/sbin/systemsetup -getremotelogin | /usr/bin/grep On"
  action :run

I'm trying to enable remote login (ie sshd) on Mountain Lion.

I've tried:

service "sshd" do
  action [:enable, start]


And variations on that theme (ssh, remotelogin, only start).

The only one which didn't result in an error was sshd, but that didn't result in sshd actually starting.

Wiki and Google offer no significant guidance.  Anyone got this working?  What incantation did you use?
