Greengirl: First-time gardener and jade plant killer is a web designer for a Minnesota newspaper. She has started a blog associated with said newspaper asking for gardening advice. She’s already gotten over a hundred comments from advice givers, some of whom are writing back to exchange information with other commenters. I had a lot of fun reading the comments, especially the one from her mother, which started out, “How come you never tell me when you get published?” Check it out, and give your own advice!
