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 SSM 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 🙂

    Don’t eat uncooked beans – at least some kinds will fuck you up.

  26. Nicolas Bertin on August 30, 2018 at 11:20 pm

    In the clay soil at my urban garden, beans don’t grow very well. Like carrots, they don’t like compacted clay soil. You really need a lot of manure and compost to work the soil in order for it to accept beans. Whereas tomatoes, courgettes, peppers or squashes really don’t mind clay soil. Fruits are adapted to clay soil, like strawberries, raspberries, apples, pears etc… As far as herbs are concerned they don’t mind it. But for carrots and other root vegetables, they don’t seem to be strong enough to break that hardened soil in summer. Only potatoes work because they’re round. But radishes, carrots, turnips, parsnips… you need to lighten your soil.

    Btw I’m also interested in the origin of plants, so I love that you know that carrots are from Asia. In fact almost nothing is from Europe. Cabbage ? Lettuce ? Even basil is Asian, apples are Asian, onion is from the Middle East, grapes might be from North Africa etc…

  28. Black Rex on August 30, 2018 at 11:23 pm

  29. Tristan Sweatshirt on August 30, 2018 at 11:25 pm

    Sooo I grew carrots this past season. It didn’t go well. That said it was mostly due to the absolute garbage soil that is here in FL. I thought I would be able to get away with it because I live right next to a creek and figured that would provide with the nutrients needed. It worked for a while too until the rains came. It got so wet and rainy that the carrots just rotted in the ground where they were planted. They weren’t even mature or anything yet. The largest one was about 3 inches long… or would have been if the bottom half hadn’t turned into carrot mush.

  33. Claudia Frasca-Jones on August 30, 2018 at 11:34 pm

    Where do you get your seeds from?

  34. I'm GChaser on August 30, 2018 at 11:35 pm

    Asian greens are NOT easy to grow in the west, there is a reason why they are called asian, because they need heat, and lots of it.

  35. Spookylady on August 30, 2018 at 11:35 pm

    I’m from the USA and I LOVE your accent! Thanks for sharing your garden tips. I’m a relatively new gardener in southern California and the climate here is like yours. Can’t wait to have some delicious veggies soon.

  36. Cody Williams on August 30, 2018 at 11:36 pm

    2:16 "Try Misuna, OR Cibuna"….WOMBOOK. Then 2:27 I LMFAO. I love this guy.

  37. Soggy Buffalo on August 30, 2018 at 11:36 pm

    I’ve heard that you can’t eat red kidney beans raw or sprouted and possibly soy beans raw or sprouted due to toxicity, but I guess you wouldn’t want to eat raw red kidney beans raw because they’re like rocks, lol. Excellent video though dude! Tumbs up.

  38. Paul-Olivier noname on August 30, 2018 at 11:38 pm

    You know "Self Sufficient Me" some people don’t even have a garden. So you are talking to those people. Only.

  39. Adoknight Mobile on August 30, 2018 at 11:39 pm

  40. Robert Bryant Lock on August 30, 2018 at 11:42 pm

    Nice video, great energy. :)))

  41. Schn00bs on August 30, 2018 at 11:44 pm

    Unlike cowpea, green beans are quite toxic when eaten raw…

  42. Daniel Land on August 30, 2018 at 11:45 pm

    Great Video thanks for sharing Mate 🙂

  43. Andrew Golledge on August 30, 2018 at 11:45 pm

    Only just discovered you and I’m glad I have. Always wanted to find a local grower to take a lead from as I’m on the southern Gold Coast and it’s tricky knowing what to grow, and when. Looking forward to viewing many more of your videos. Cheers.

  44. Rommie Mex on August 30, 2018 at 11:46 pm

    This was both educational, and entertaining… Just like a Bruce Willis film!
    Love it

  45. Cullen Bordages on August 30, 2018 at 11:48 pm

    A trick down here is to grow pole beans inbetween stalks of corn, which gives a 6th crop, and support for the beans.

  46. Thesupergardenbroom Garden broom on August 30, 2018 at 11:48 pm
