Anton + garden

He is in his element in the garden he created behind his grand home 'de Blaúe Camer' near the ferry at Opheusden.

A folly resembling a fortified castle, complete with fake watchtower. This is where Anton Haverkort, a farmer's son who researches potatoes at PRI, grows his Frieslanders, the earliest potatoes in Wageningen.' Sown in trays on the windowsill and planted out in April, they provide him with a few months' worth of home-grown spuds.
