Cold Spell Continues

There's not much gardening going on as the cold spell of weather continues. Plants are starting to get to the stage where they need to move on to the next stage whether that be from inside to the greenhouse, greenhouse to cold frame or cold frame to allotment. Parsnips and carrots seeds need sowing soon. I can't see much point in doing any of the above with daytime temperatures remaining below 10°C (50°F) and nightime temperatures down to almost freezing point.

In the greenhouse though it looks like our peach, apricot and nectarine trees have, so far, survived the cold nights with their fruitlets intact. We have tiny fruits developing on each of the trees.
Peach - "Avalon Pride"
Apricot - "Flavourcot"
Nectarine - "Fantasia"
Now if only the weather would improve our gardening season could restart.
