June 21/22 CSA

Another week of wonderful Spring Greens! I promise other things are on the horizon. Soon summer squash, cucumbers, beets, and young onions will fill the cooler, but this week is a time to honor kale, lettuce, chard, and other leafy greens. I love kale fried up with bacon (lucky you who have protein shares this week- beautiful pastured bacon from EGA Farms!) or steamed in a little chicken broth with red chile flakes. We also have some beautiful baby neon chard from Ace of Spades farm, tender and young enough to be enjoyed as a salad. Ace of Spades is a beautiful multi-generational family farm tucked in the West Palisades of Spokane and Alex Ekins, the owner, also serves has the president of LINC's board of directors. Their new signature Homestead Salad mix makes an appearance in this week's boxes as well. Enjoy!

One more treat this week! Pure Eire dairy has send chocolate milk samples for all our shares this week! Order more in our online store!
