Anyone else doing Heaven's Harvest spring CSA?

They offered a pick-up at my hubby's workplace so it was too convenient to pass up. I have been disappointed with the quality of the produce, though; much of it seems to be a bit long in the tooth or not stored properly (wet lettuce, anyone?). I realize that they are bringing up veggies from along the Eastern seaboard, and that sitting in a truck is not great for freshness, but I am still bumming - especially given the price we're paying (much higher than our usual summer CSA).

Then tonight my hubby told me that the veggies are left in a shed in a parking lot; the dropoff is not manned by anyone. I supposed they use the shed for security but I think the veggies must suffer in the heat. Is anyone else doing their spring share? Have your veggies been fresher?
