CSA Boxes - Seattle

Hoping this isn't off topic, but am sure I can't be the only adherent of this board who subscribes to a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm for organic produce.

Last summer we subscribed to a farm whose produce was fresh and good, but they drove me crazy w/ carrots. Every week, carrots! They started off cute and tasty, but by summer's end we were talking wood pulp.

So we switched. This summer, too, there's been excellence (the eggs are heavenly), nary a carrot in box, but also some things that don't seem quite fresh.

What I'd like is to get some recommendations, and compare experiences with other CSA subscribers. This is an (as far as I know) unregulated, un-critiqued area of food consumption.

Any thoughts?
