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.
