Happy New Year for a New 2013 Gardening Year

Hello Everyone,

I thought I'd better start to post on my herb page.  I do see I have some followers, and some people visiting the blog site. I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season, and New Year.

This site is just a start up.  I will use this to show off my herbs I will hopefully have for this year.  This is going to be a year of not-sures.  I am not sure of the weather we will have.  We are currently in a extreme drought situation here in Nebraska.  We have just within the last few weeks, received about 4 inches of snow and that is about it.  It is also very dry snow, with very little moisture content and we are over 12-15 inches below our normal for precipitation, and it is not looking very good for farming and gardening.  So I just am not sure what kind of year we will have.

I am also not sure where I will be at as far as location.  I am in the beginning stages of looking for a different place to live.  I am looking at living in a different county and a much smaller community and taking my gardening business with me.  I have to find the right place.  I need more room as I want to add more herbs and different herbs and I also want to expand and add to my culinary mushroom business, so I need some outbuildings to house my mushroom blocks and some small logs for my Shitakii mushrooms. It is very hard to find places to live where I am at.  So there are a lot of factors in the equation.  Right now, the weather is making it  hard to look, some roads are bad, icy and snow-packed, and its cold now, so its very hard to go out driving to where I would like to look.  I have a small ad in the local newspaper where I would like to live, running for someplace to rent for my business.  I hope that I can snag a few places.  Its a lot like fishing, you have to throw out a line and bait and just sit and be patient. So, if anyone is from Nebraska, and reads this blog, and you know of something in the Custer County area, or the village of Arnold, Nebraska, please let me know, that is where I am looking to move to.

I have a nice following of culinary customers for my mushrooms and herbs, I am so looking forward to provide fresh ingredients for everyone to enjoy wonderful, rich, savory meals with.  I have so many ideas, and plans, if it would just all come together like a fine pie crust. What a joy!

Well,  I just thought I would post that I am still here.  I have plans and hopefully it will come together.  Thank you for stopping by, reading and hopefully will follow me around.

Take care all.

Tornado warnings as I post

Well, its that time of year again.  Lovely tornado warnings and hail.   We have had tornadoes on the ground as I post this. The sirens are wailing and the hail is a hail'in.  I ran out quickly to cover my garden to get pelted with golf ball size hail in the head, and I am soaking wet.
I just came in to post these photos, we are just hunking down and hoping for the best.
I will post when the all clear is given.  It is going to be one of those sleepless nights I am afraid.

Welcome to my Herbal World

Hello and Welcome to my blog about my company called  Denimflyz Herbals N Greens.

I love culinary herbs for cooking and their use in natural and soothing products for the skin and hair and the nose.  So several years ago, I started growing culinary herbs and experimenting with their use. Then last year, I took the plunge and opened a booth at our local farmer's market and it was a hit with customers.
As I grow, I am planning on more and different types of herbs, and if all goes well, and the weather holds, I will carry herb transplants.  I also plan on providing culinary mushrooms, and herb and spice mixes, both dried and fresh.

I am also working through the winter and making different types of hand made soaps, some incorporating my herbs in the soaps for lovely scents for happy bathing and facial care.
I am planning on carrying heirloom seeds for greens and mescluns.  And as I can afford to add, more seeds for heirloom vegetables.

My heart and soul goes into my garden and what I create.  I love to garden and I love to provide others with the same enjoyment that I receive from my gardening and herbs.

Please look for postings after the holidays, sometime in January.  In February, I start some of my transplants, and I start some mesclun baby lettuces.
I will keep you posted on soaps available, and other goings-on in the garden.

Have wonderful Holidays and I will see you all later.
