From Gar­den To Ta­ble

Matt Co­hen (Grif­fin) and his wife, Mandy Mus­grave (ex-Chelsea, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), are all about fam­ily time and eat­ing right, so they’ve started grow­ing their own food with son Mack­lin, 2. “Mack puts his lit­tle gloves on and wa­ters the plants,” brags Co­hen. “That’s my most re­cent ob­ses­sion — us as a fam­ily, gar­den­ing and learn­ing about agri­cul­ture. We’re learn­ing how to grow our own fruits and veg­eta­bles. Since this was one of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s big­gest blooms in a while, we’ve got a gar­den full of wild­flow­ers, blue­ber­ries and black­ber­ries grow­ing — and ev­ery­thing came from seeds.” The happy gar­dener warns that not all seeds are cre­ated equal. “We’re try­ing to grow or­ganic, heir­loom food, and you don’t al­ways know what you’re buy­ing when you get it from Home De­pot or your lo­cal gar­den­ing store,” he ex­plains. “At the end of the day, they’re just try­ing to sell you some­thing. So I or­der sur­vival kit or­ganic seeds off Ama­zon or spe­cialty sites that have re­spon­si­bil­ity for what they’re sell­ing.”

Co­hen doesn’t mind get­ting his hands dirty.
