It seems to be a pretty clear-cut case of survival of the fittest. While many of the smaller, weaker leaves keep going downhill, it really does seem like some of the leaves that were bigger, and thereby stronger, do seem to be growing a bit. I really do find it amazing that can happen given all the cold and ice we’ve had.
And it doesn’t look like it’s totally out of the woods yet. Daytime highs will be well above freezing during the next week (yay!), but at least two nights are forecast to be below freezing, in the upper 20s.
I’m getting more confident that if the lettuce has made it this far, the rest of this week should be a piece of cake. And with March finally here, it’s got to be close to the last freeze date for central Texas, right?
