I love going to Garden Writers meetings, I get to see other garden writers, editors and photographers, listen to the latest and greatest in the garden writer’s world. I am, however, ambivalent about receiving goodie bags filled with garden product. The organizers of the GWA meeting emphasized that in exchange for getting these “gifts,” we are obligated to write about them. Some of these products are great, but others…not so much.
