Fresh Vegetables From My Dad's Vegetable Garden

on Jul. 12, 2006 by

Nothing beats home grown vegetables, my dad loves running his own garden project called Vadertje Takkenbos in Santpoort.

My dad took me on a little cruise through my hometown of IJmuiden in the municipality of Velsen.

We drove by the watertoren which used to be one of my favorite spots to hangout as a kid and play silly war games with my neighborhood friends.

We ended up at my dads cottage with a complete kitchen garden and glass house.

My dad loves growing his own flowers and vegetables which latter ones will result in delicious and healthy meals.

It is a lot of work to maintain but luckily my dad gets a lot of help. "Vadertje Takkenbos" is the name of the cottage.

I honestly wish I spend more time with my dad growing vegetables and learning more about the planting process.

Unfortunately the summer in Holland are pretty short thus there is not much time to enjoy the garden.
