This is the first CSA I have joined, so I can't compare to anything else, but I loved my first CSA experience. I split a share in 2011 with a coworker, and we were both thrilled with it. I loved the challenge of bringing home some of the veggies I had never cooked before and learning how to cook them. And when you're working with fresh produce its hard to go too wrong anyway! Everyone was really nice, and though the shares got a little light some weeks when weather was bad, that is to be expected. I really enjoyed getting updates from Farmer John about how his crops were growing, what pests or weather challenges he was facing, and how that would affect that week's share. Overall, I had a great experience and am looking forward to the 2012 season!
