Olympian Natalie Coughlin grows her own...

Vegetables, that is -  Eleven time Olympic medalist Natalie Coughlin took a break from swimming laps to chat with the Green Life about her other passion – gardening. An urban farmer, Natalie replaced nearly all her landscaping with edibles and grows her own food. 

She told Sierra Magazine: “...It gives me a sense of calm. I just go out and stare at the beds.” Between caring for 10 citrus trees, seven different vegetable beds, an array of herbs AND five chickens, Natalie will no doubt still find time to train for the London Games this summer. ..." 

Check out the full interview - Coughlin once did some ocean swim through an oil spill to ill results.

We had chickens and the eggs are amazing but beware; they eat like birds and poop like dinosaurs. We also have a pretty good garden going and growing your own tomatoes and everything else that goes into a good spaghetti sauce is simply amazing.  The food you grow tastes much richer than the watered down, GMO produced, store bought stuff.
