winter survivors

Spent the last sunny day weeding out the Lettuce that overwintered. The Simpson patch looks so nice now!
The Romaine didn't do as well, which surprised me. I guess because the Simpson leaves look more fragile, I expected them to succumb more to cold.
Discovered when I pulled a few rotted stumps out that the cardboard tubes I pot the young plants in hadn't all decomposed. I wonder if it restricts the roots and keeps them from growing well? Maybe I shouldn't put the cardpots straight in the ground anymore...
