Calgary CSA Ratings

I just saw this thread on the Boston thread and thought that it would be useful to import it. I just joined a CSA this summer--Oxyoke Farm--but was thinking of switching to another next summer, perhaps Eagle Creek Farms, which seems to have better variety (I get their e-mails), more choice, and just plain more in the weekly box. Oxyoke's offerings have been getting a bit bigger the last two weeks, but they still don't seem quite worth the money I'm paying ($500/summer), although it depends how many more weeks it will last. The variety has also been only so-so: lots and lots of chard and kale (which I like, but still). I know we don't live in CA, but I do believe other CSAs have offered things like herbs and tomatoes at this point. I'd give Oxyoke a 3/5, although the summer's not over yet. What have others' experiences with different CSAs been?
