When she launched her garden blog she gave me a mention in an article in the print edition of the Chicago Tribune. At the Chicago Flower & Garden Show I had the pleasure of finally meeting Beth in person. A couple of days ago I emailed her to ask her for advice and now I'm starting to wonder if I'm bad luck. Not long after I had communicated with Ketzel Levine by email she was laid off by NPR. You can now find Ketzel Levine at Ketzel.com and hopefully Beth will make the transition to the internet because I know she has a lot of fans in Chicago.

Update: Beth Botts has recently launched her own garden blog GrowingInChicago.Com
