Whether its herbs on a windowsill or a backyard tomato plant, many Americans grow some of their own food at home, but few do it to the extent that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have taken it.

The stars of “That ‘70s Show” own a modern farmhouse in Los Angeles where they grow, among other things, squash, lettuce, carrots, apples, apricots, plums, figs, and limes, Kunis told C Magazine recently. In August the family was “very much in the tomato business,” she shared before noting that while she doesn’t have a green thumb, she wouldn’t say she has a black thumb either. “Let’s call it gray. And don’t judge my pruning.”

“My husband’s from the Midwest, and a lot of this has to do with his upbringing. He’s like, we’re building a farm and we’re all going to work on the farm. I’m from L.A., and I was like, we are? This has been a big learning curve for all of us,” said Kunis.

The actress continued, sharing that her parents “make fun of me that it probably costs more to grow a tomato here than to get one at the store. But I say, at least my kids will understand the value of a tomato and how much work goes into growing it. It’s good not to be afraid to get dirty.”

The farm is solar powered and is watered from a well, making the California home mostly off the grid. “We had this grand idea and then we moved in four months before COVID hit. We didn’t realize how incredible it was to have a fully sustainable house until the world shut down,” shared Kunis.
