Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Here Comes the Corn

It's a long process, getting the gardens ready, planted, watered, tended. Lots of work.

So it's always wonderful when we see the first shoots coming up, the long lines of corn starting to grow.

This is what it looks like early in the season. Before the more familiar sight of the tall stalks and sunflowers that grace our summer garden!

But it's here... it's growing... it's going to be ready for summer cookouts on the beach, on the bbq. Corn is one of the best things about summer. IF it's done right. None of this pallid store-bought corn, that has been in transit for who-knows-how-long. Our dad, Paul, used to maintain that corn should not even be picked from the plant until the water was boiling and ready. He was quite right, because corn begins immediately upon picking to convert its sugars into starches. That's why a lot of folk add a spoonful of sugar to the water when cooking corn from a supermarket.

Even better is to be here, at Bondi, where you can order you corn in August, and we deliver it to the cottage just in time for dinner. The best tasting corn on the planet.
