Self Sufficient Me is based on our small 3-acre property/homestead in SE Queensland Australia about 45kms north of Brisbane – the climate is subtropical (similar to Florida). I started Self Sufficient Me in 2011 as a blog website project where I document and write about backyard food growing, self-sufficiency, and urban farming in general. I love sharing my foodie and DIY adventures online so come along with me and let’s get into it! Cheers, Mark 🙂

    Some people do live on beans..and rice or corn..
    is it true that beans cause wind?
    I love peti pois 😊
    potatoes are underestimated..
    easy to grow all year round 💞

    This is a funny guy I always do that with the onions everywhere else they put the onions on topic fall off I always put them in the bun first and then put the hot dog on top of them

  8. Don Pe on August 24, 2021 at 10:06 pm

  10. annabelle Green on August 24, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    You are so interesting & funny to watch…..We need you more than we need Potatoes.

  11. Spaniell on August 24, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Just like bugs bunny, carrots taste nice

  12. Roberta Limbocker on August 24, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    What is your garden dirt mix for your raised beds?

  13. Tony Castińeira on August 24, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Sauerkraut is fermented kale (sour kale) hahaha 😀
    The German name for Kale is Grünkohl or just Kohl.

  14. LINDA SCHLOMER on August 24, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    That was awesome!

  15. faux painter Artist best in Nevada on August 24, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    I like KALE. Is easy to grow in southern nevada. USA

  16. Iggy-not-Pop on August 24, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    I’d Add Other Leafy Greens Besides Just Lettuce, Which You Cook or Juice. Kale, Collards, Mustard, Spinach, Chard, Turnip, Etc. Lots Of Vitamin A, C, Fiber, Easy To Grow, Late Season, Etc. In The South Of The U S People Would Buy Mixed Green Seeds & Sow A Field In The Fall For Food All Winter ! Some Are Hardy To Frost Or Even Freeze.

  17. Mary Corrick on August 24, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    I would add broccoli and cantelope

  18. George Agbanrin on August 24, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Thank you, appreciate you lesson. Agree with everything you said. Particularly agree with your planting in raied beds.

  19. Zea Perrotta on August 24, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    So inspiring thank you..I need to get into the garden!

  20. Russell Bowman on August 24, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Instead of cabbage, the cruciferous family: cabbage, brussel sprouts, kolrhabi, broccoli, collards, cauliflower, and many of these vary within each category, like purple cabbage, broccoli rhab, etc. Some adapt better to different climate, soil, and seasonal situations. Some are close relatives like bockchoi, kale, turnips and rudabega. (Sorry for the poor English here.)

  21. litemite100 on August 24, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Sweet potatoes added to the potatoes! I love the sweet potato!

  22. Rebecca Dewhirst on August 24, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    I love this and everything he mentioned I love to eat especially the things that go And a salad but I love the part about potatoes too because they’ve gotten such a bad name now I know how nutritious they are especially if they’re not cooked in bed oil very good report I love this

  23. Kruize Murray-Faulkner on August 24, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    I’d say potato number one and tomato number two but some great info in this

  24. Grow Younger on August 24, 2021 at 10:27 pm

    I am wondering which of the plants one actually also could eat the leaves and greens or is it harmful?

  25. Nils El-Himoud on August 24, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    I even grows on my lawn! Rofl!

  26. Leanne Meissner on August 24, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Wonderful List – only thing I would remove is the tomatoes, due to Lectins. Lectins eat through your gut, cause poor gut health – according to Dr. Gundry. I would re-think that one. The one I wouldn’t have thought of is the cabbage, which when turned into sauerkraut is fantastic for your gut health. Thank you. 🙂

  27. mel amigable on August 24, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Green beans, beets, peppers of all kinds, potatoes, large pumpkin, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, chard, squash.

  35. Rebecca Klepper on August 24, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Love your video, going to use your argument on the potato next time I see my doctor. I have a small raised bed in my front yard and am going to try one in my small backyard.

  36. Olivia. be. on August 24, 2021 at 10:41 pm

  39. Ashley on August 24, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    I love the sound of the leaves rubbing together when you pick the veggies. Haven’t got a good beet yet, but I do like the leaves in salads.

  40. Carrol Brown on August 24, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    👍

  41. Sarah Cronje on August 24, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    What about spinach? Not a big lettuce fan… spinach is so versatile, can be used in a salad or cooked 😊 but love your videos…

  42. Jannie Meyer on August 24, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Vital during these times!
