About Me

Welcome to The RainyDayGardener, a blog about organically gardening in the Pacific Northwest. Through this blog, I have been able to combine my love of writing, photography and gardening. This has been a wonderful undertaking and I enjoy the adventure of it. I am a passionate ornamental and edible grower and I strive to create a landscape, that is budget, kid and pet friendly, while choosing alternatives to chemicals and pesticides.

I started this blogging adventure in 2008 and have expanded my interest from only growing classic ornamental plants to creating a large vegetable garden, complete with fruit trees and several varieties of berries. And, while I still appreciate classic and traditional plants, I have become more selective about my plant choices, taking care that they are water wise, multi-season and adding more natives to my plant selections. I enjoy bringing in relatively rare and collector conifer species into my gardens.


The greatest joy I have experienced through blogging is connecting with fellow garden bloggers. Truly, gardeners are some of the nicest people. I have learned so much from this great group and hope to share my enthusiasm and lessons learned as I weave a life around garden time.

  3. Jenni, can I be so bold as to suggest a small but intrepid farmers market for inclusion in your list of Clackamas County Farmers Markets??
