Still Waiting for Spring - Gardening on Hold

It wouldn't really matter what month of the year we were discussing, the last few days have been very poor. The last three days in particular have been exceptionally cold, misty and damp for the middle of April.
Temperature & Rainfall Records 10-12 April 2018
Day time highs have struggled to get much above 7°C (45.0°F) and, with the low cloud and misty, wet weather prevailing all day long, even greenhouse temperatures haven't made it to 10°C or 50°F. However, the cloudy and wet night times do mean that we haven't had any frosts.

The poor weather means that we are behind with getting beds dug over and planted up at the allotment but then we're not the only ones that are behind.

Hopefully, next week will turn out to be as good as the forecasts suggest and we might be able to get a few gardening jobs done as conditions improve.
