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 🙂

    I don’t know if you ever get this. Maybe too busy or you don’t check stuff that’s been cup years old but I’ve been following you for a few weeks and you have inspired me to start a raised garden experiment. I love your videos, your enthusiasm, And your skills. Thank you so much!

    Who knew planting fruit and veg could be so interesting. I am rapidly becoming a convert eyeing sites in my garden that could be used for vegetables. Thanks for your many inspirational videos. Your enthusiasm and can do attitude is totally infectious… enough to get me off of my couch 👍😃

    Are gourds edible? Or is there another name for them?

  7. Hadmin on March 17, 2022 at 5:24 pm

    "Winter" without at least a yard (1 meter) of snow is fall.

  8. WeAreHerePlayz on March 17, 2022 at 5:24 pm

    Oh yeah, i’ve got your variety of radishes.

  9. Junior Tupuse on March 17, 2022 at 5:24 pm

  10. Chris Penn on March 17, 2022 at 5:25 pm

    Mark cracks me up 😂🤣 love these videos. So useful living on a Finca in Tenerife. To know how you grow year round as our climates are very similar 🤙🏽 “Let’s Get Into It” 🤣🤙🏽

    You the man. Hey, does leaf miner affect your citrus over there in Australia?

  12. Family Guy on March 17, 2022 at 5:26 pm

    love your channel! do you have all your video’s available for download/purchase?

  13. christopher Mee on March 17, 2022 at 5:30 pm

    What’s the capital of China.

  14. Sandra Wollstein on March 17, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    I’m intrigued by the way you’ve done your trellises for the passionfruit and the smaller one near the turmeric plant. Is there any chance you can do an episode on how to build them?

  15. Davina Michaeli on March 17, 2022 at 5:34 pm

    Love this video, watched it several times and shared it with plenty , thank you !!!!

  16. Bob Hoover on March 17, 2022 at 5:35 pm

    Winter in Queensland, that time of year when you might have to wear trousers instead of shorts.

  17. Kc Wortham on March 17, 2022 at 5:36 pm

    I like your videos but being on the other side of the pond we don’t use most of those crops

  18. ElstonAirways1 on March 17, 2022 at 5:36 pm

    Are you South East Queensland Mark or a little further North?

  19. Denise Chavis on March 17, 2022 at 5:38 pm

    You ain’t lying I get too attached to my plants especially the Roma Tomato 🍅 it’s so bad I want to move to a warmer climate now

  20. TexasToast93 on March 17, 2022 at 5:40 pm

  21. Shadowstar1917 on March 17, 2022 at 5:42 pm

  22. Cha' bridget tumusiime on March 17, 2022 at 5:42 pm

    Thank you for teaching n sharing your gardening, veggies, fruits

  23. Aniek Scharenborg on March 17, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Will you ever be growing wheat? For bread making

  24. Donna Kelly on March 17, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Hi Mark,
    How did you go growing the Rocoto chilli?
    I am gobsmacked at ours here on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, as they are prolific all year round. Even through winter when the temperature drops to 2degrees Celsius.
    They are a spreading plant and we hope to espalier ours when we move to the Westernport-Bass region soon

  25. King Wendigo on March 17, 2022 at 5:45 pm

    MV rất hay, i like it 😦😩😧

  26. Vaper's Kick Butt on March 17, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    I love watching your videos, even though 99% is stuff I can’t personally do myself. I live in Minnesota, U.S.A., and we go from -20 (-30c) up to possibly 110 (43c)! How cold do your winters get?

  27. WeAreHerePlayz on March 17, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    Can you help me?

  28. Christine J on March 17, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    Thank you for sharing!

  29. GLAMTRAP on March 17, 2022 at 5:51 pm

    Love your channel thanks for sharing your knowledge!

  30. Roselin Primrose on March 17, 2022 at 5:52 pm

    Always do

  31. Garulus Glandarius on March 17, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    Mark, your garden is amazing. Thank you for the good advice and the cheery videos. Top bloke 👍🇦🇺🇬🇧

  32. Kathlyn Black on March 17, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    I am now learning the differences between cool weather crops and warm weather crops. I SO appreciate your videos! Your information is still very helpful here in sub-tropical east Texas, USA. In addition, your personality is very pleasant to listen to (and not bad to look at either!) Thank you for all you do!

  33. Lani Sautia on March 17, 2022 at 5:56 pm

    I love how he always says "we" so cute 🥰🥰

  34. Doug Egbert on March 17, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    Do you have a system for filling the metal elevated garden

  35. Laumeesi Latu on March 17, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    Hey Mark thank you for that tip to save growing tomatoes to Winter. I’m struggling here in Sydney trying to grow tomatoes during summer.

  36. Hope Is On The Way on March 17, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    Brillant Mark. Another great vid. All of your advice is invaluable. Keep up the humour as well 😂😉Love it….

  37. Mira Gonzales on March 17, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    ..what are doing with the rest of your harvest…the remaining from the regular consumption…?.you have lots of harvest..

  38. Andrew Thomas on March 17, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    If anyone wants a bulletproof bean to grow, try ‘Vitalis’ type. You wont regret planting them. They are stringless and high yields per plant.

  39. Shannon Robinson on March 17, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    I made Jerusalem artichokes into brined pickles this winter. They are really nice. Thanks. It also gets rid of the wind they cause when cooked.

  40. ############# on March 17, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    Thanks Mark

  41. Muhammad Siddiq on March 17, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    Nice

  42. GLAMTRAP on March 17, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    The ending is so funny 😂

  43. WeAreHerePlayz on March 17, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    I’ve sowed Radishes in the summer. I dont think they would make it. I dont know why but, my zucchinis/ summer squash arent producing any big fruits. I dont know why they wont do it. My Marigolds are doing good. My cucumbers arent producing fruits too. I dont know why that also happens with the cucumber.

  44. TheInevitable on March 17, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Mate you’re luck you don’t need to wear a subzero jacket like some other people!

  45. MountainMan253 on March 17, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    17:05 : My car trying to start in the winter

  46. Angelica Dixon on March 17, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Hey Mark where in Australia do you leave? I’m from Port Macquarie NSW, just wanted to check to see about the weather difference.

  47. DiabloMinero on March 17, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Have you considered growing Galapagos wild tomatoes in summer? Supposedly they’re much more heat-tolerant than domestic tomatoes. They’re about cherry tomato sized.

  48. didjaroo on March 17, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Mate do you sell your tshirts?

  49. Sheena's KetoVore! Life on March 17, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    Have you ever thought about growing Florida Everglades tomatoes they are a cherry tomato I’m sure they would do amazing there

  50. Nevada Staab on March 17, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Thank you for your videos! You make it seem so doable to be self-sufficient in something and I’m really excited to get more self-sufficient!
