I'm looking into joining one of these this year and was curious if anyone in the Seattle area (South Sound since I'm in Covington/Maple Valley area) uses one. I found this list, but it seems out of date. LocalHarvest (http://www.localharvest.org/search-csa.jsp?map=1&lat=47.376480&lon=-122.099400&scale=8&ty=6&co=1&nm=&zip=98042). I suppose most of them are great, so it's probably an issue of eney meny miny mo.

Hmmm, I get my stuff by air, but it comes from Carnation, Washington, http://www.fullcirclefarm.com, and they deliver to plenty of places around Seattle, though maybe not far enough south for you. I've been happy with the variety and quality of things I've gotten from them, and they run all winter.

Glory - that looks like a great farm, plus they do things for chidlren! But it's too far away.

Pat - That one would be doable. There is a pick up spot in Issaquah which is about 15 miles away from me. Thanks for the link. I'm excited to start this.

Pat - if I decide to go with this one I'll pm you. Since you referred me you'd get a $29 credit.

Wow, that'd be great. I'll give you my name if you decide. :) I was just thinking about what I have left from my box. 1 orange, 1 apple, 2 tomatoes (they are just barely better than the grocery - it's really too early) some lettuce, turnips, and a "braising" mix (heartier greens like kale). I think I'll have the greens and turnips tonight with some sort of veggie pasta. And me just back from lunch, already thinking about eating dinner.....
