When the pike and bass arrive at the table, smelling of juniper smoke, Derek peels back the skin and sprinkles on sea salt and white-pine vinegar (made by steeping white pine needles in apple-cider vinegar). He then garnishes the fish with lemony sorrel, which grows wild behind his cotage, and peppery nasturtium leaves. No Lemons, his black, Sunish-logoed T-shirt says, and he means it: they don’t meet his deinition of “indigenous” foods. “They can be introduced here from elsewhere, but they have to be able to survive and thrive in our Canadian climate,” he explains. “And they can’t remind you of another place.

About Cottage Life

Find your wild side with the June/July 2019 issue of Cottage Life! The lake is where we let loose and get in touch with nature. In this issue you’ll hear from Canadian writers Heather O’Neill, Andrew Pyper, Lisa Moore, Clive Thompson, and Elamin Abdelmahmoud on how they go wild at the cottage. You’ll get inspired by a cottager who forages his woods for dinner and meet the people behind the (thriving) honeybees of Georgina Island. Want to know how five people share a 720 sq. ft. cabin? We’ll give you a peek inside a tiny East Coast cabin. We’ll show you the coolest swim raft we’ve ever seen and tell you about the best (ready-made) Caesars. You’ll get to know wetlands: how they help manage floods and keep our lakes clean, and how to protect them. If you’re planning a big party, we’ll tell you what permits and insurance to get. You’ll find fixes for your hot and stuffy sleeping loft and a sagging shelf. Plus, we’ll get you up to date on how vacancy taxes could affect cottage properties. Pick up the June/July issue of Cottage Life…ready, set, let go!
