Good News from the Garden

Even on the hottest day, even at noon, we can appreciate the gardens of Cafe Drake HRV, even if only through a glass door.

A favorite spot to relax after pruning, weeding and watering!

Peak Growing Season now in the Hudson River Valley.
Heaps of mint are harvested every other day for drying.

Several varieties of lettuces and a mound of chives ensure that no meal is without fresh greens at Cafe Drake HRV.

Bachelor Buttons are such a winning combination of bright blue flowers and silvery, elegant leaves.
