This morning is already much warmer than the last three days, and tomorrow's high will be in the low-70's. Looks like the first day to approach the garden injured by the freeze. My bay laurel was looking good, but I'm sure I lost the tallest sprig and this may be the death knell for that shrub in that location. I like having bay, but it needs to be in the front yard where it is more protected from cold weather.
My to-do list has a number of items that are more complicated to complete before crossing them off. They don't necessarily cost any more, they simply take extra planning and execution. Seeing things crossed out regularly gives a remarkable feeling of accomplishment, so other small tasks that will make their way onto the list to balance it out.
Easter is late this year, but now is the time to start many of my garden plants from seed, and they may get transplanted to the garden before late April. The rule of thumb my neighbor uses is "don't plant tomatoes before Easter," but the soil will be warm enough before that date. Maybe I'll get beans and lettuce this year.
