The First Spears Of Asparagus 2019 Have Been Sighted!

QuickImage Tags: Gardening And Food


Today is the first day I've searched the asparagus beds this year. Voila! They are here. I'm not really sure when the tiny mauve tips broke ground.

They grow very slowly at first. I'll have to wait another 2 to 3 weeks for the spears to get big enough to harvest.

Marble Mountain Road Trash Pickup Week May 13 - 19

QuickImage Tags: Community Action


It's that time of year again - it's time to get out and collect the trash that has accumulated on the roadside and in the ditches over the past year.

I don't know the precise date for big trash pickup but it happens before the end of May. I will let you know when I find out.

Don't feel you have to stick to the pickup dates here, you can do it anytime. Just consider that the road trash pickup should be done before the end of the month. Pick a nice weather day and the chore will be enjoyable.

This is most easily done before the leaves come out on the bushes and other undergrowth.

The Maple Taps Are In

QuickImage Tags: Maple Sugaring Season


The taps went in on Wednesday, March 13. The flow commenced immediately. I am predicting a bountiful harvest for 2019.

This year for the first time the sap will be run through a reverse osmosis system, that should reduce water content by half. Boiling the sap down to syrup should go a lost faster using this system.

The snow pack is lower and there is no need for snowshoes, though they would make easier walking on what snow there is.

The dip and chili contest are on despite the snowfall. 

The hall will be warm and if there are enough entries the judging will go forth. So far I know of three chili entries. 

Please use your best judgement in whether or not you go to the dip and hall. 

Most of all we want everyone to have a safe and healthy New Year so you can do it again next year.

New Year's Annual Marble Mountain Day Polar Bear Dip At The Wharf And Chili Cook-Off at 1:00 p.m. In Marble Mountain Hall. "Rain" Date: January 8

QuickImage Tags: New Year's Day Swim and Chili


Come join in the good times on New Year's Day! Frozen Rain Date: January 8.

Marble Mountain will be holding its annual Polar Bear Dip followed by a Chili contest in the hall on New Year's Day.

Get there a few minutes early. The dip will be held promptly at 1:00. If the wharf road is impassable, the dip will be held at MacInnis Beach in Lime Hill.

If you plan to do the dip, consider wearing a pair of thick wool socks. The beach bottom can be rough, extra cold and slippery. Your feet will thank you. And bring a big towel and/or blanket.

Following the dip, there will be a contest for the Golden Spoon in Marble Mountain Hall. The Golden Spoon will be awarded to the person who is judged to have made the best chili. Doesn't this sound like fun? Bring your best chili and enter it in the competition. You could be the next holder of the Golden Spoon trophy.

This is always a fun event and we get good food as a bonus.

Donations go to L'Arche.
