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 🙂

    Great series. So glad you included cuttings. Meyer lemon is very easy to root. Take a cutting, stick in a potting soil and cover with a plastic bag. Produces lemons the 2nd year. For colder climates, put the rooted seedlings in a pot and protect in winter. Blackberries are easy to propagate by root cuttings.
