Who picks your seeds out?

Lately I have been doing a bit of comparative analysis. By reading other CSA's websites and ads, I have determined that a couple of my competitors allow their shareholders to vote on what will be planted the next season. I have never done that but might give it a try this year. A few questions are in order.

Have any of you tired it?

How do you do it?

Does it add to your business?

I planted seeds of "Emerite" bean one year at the request of one of my members. I babied them and only got enough to put a few in her box. When she saw them she said "those aren't Emerites". It was then I decided that I would grow several varieties of each crop of my own choosing. I do allow members to fill out a "veggie rating sheet" at the beginning of the season so they can let me know how much they like or dislike certain veggies. My farm is small enough though, so I can provide this personalization for the members.
