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.

Harvest Time

It's suprising that we haven't had a lot more killing frosts by now. Reading through my grandfather Joseph Tapley's diaries from 1905 here at Bondi, frosts often came in much earlier.

The good news is that following such a cool damp July, the lovely autumn weather has allowed the garden to mature nicely.

This week, Brian, Mike and Dave dragged out the Potato Plow, dusted it off, and harvested our potato crop.

Once the spuds are up out of the ground, they must be sorted, for size, and damage. Any that have damage must be eaten first, so they don't go bad, but the clean, unmarked potatoes will store well through the winter.

There is nothing better than the taste of vegetables fresh from your own garden. The carrots are postively sinful, melting on the tongue... Carol just whipped up a batch of Zucchini bread, and don't get us started on the golden cherry tomatoes!

  1. Yum! I got squashes, potatoes, yellow pepper at the farmers' market today, added an onion and mushrooms and made up a big batch of summer ratatouille. Maybe one day I will have the experience of my own garden, too.
