As my back is b*ggered and I can't do any gardening I thought I'd amuse myself with taking some pics of my garden and plants instead.

The first apple blossoms on my Coronet dwarf apple tree:



The dwarf apple tree with chives and nasturiums (just coming up) companion plants:



All my baby plants waiting to be planted:



Strawberry plants in ebay plant pouches (waiting patiently for me to put up hooks from which to hang them):



Dwarf peach tree in bloom:


Window box with lettuce 'Salad Bowl' (on left) and rocket (on right) Strawberry in pot. Tomato seedlings in window. The rocket seeds were left over from last year. I kept them in the fridge but my fridge is dodgy so they got damp and then froze. They seemed to be almost germinating when I sowed them (10 days ago). The whole experience doesn't seem to have done them any harm:



I really need to get these seedlings (can they be called that at this stage?!) potted up! Courgettes ( 2 types), tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers and coriander. My attic (bright, unheated) is their current home.





'Dog-proofed' blueberry plant, marjoram, oregano, chamomile and thyme and Lidl trugs awaiting planting:

You poor thing, I can sense the frustration as you look at all these plants needing attention ! We all take so much for granted....like having a functioning, pain-free back. I hope your MRI goes OK.

Thanks verge Smile Nothing says 'redneck' like a bath in the garden. I love it - a recent find from Jumbletown (it even has its original brass taps). I was planning to make a miniature fish pond in it but I'm liking your Radox suggestion more and more! Smile
