and it took its toll on the puntarelle I planted, but I had excellent germination and close to half of the crop survived single digit cold and snow (with a light topping of straw). It's been a delicious spring green with the classic dressing that includes anchovies and I've also diced stalks into chicken salad to make it less bland.
