Janice Person's real job is 'photography',she travels the world for pleasure, and is a self acclaimed 'city girl.' She shares her life experiences and passion for agriculture using social media and her blog - A Colorful Adventure. She recently started a new series of blog posts called the "A to Z about Agriculture." Everyday, she takes a letter of the alphabet and uses it to describe an important aspect of agriculture. She's on letter 'H', so stay tuned and follow her updates all the way through 'Z'! Be sure to Follow JPLovesCotton on Twitter and Facebook!
