Planting Romaine Lettuce

I planted 3 flats of romaine lettuce today.   I bought some more insect netting and continued it down the row.  I am trying to keep the rabbits from eating them when they are small.   A rabbit can mow down a whole row of lettuce seedlings in a night which I found out with my cabbage plants that I planted Thanksgiving day, only to find all 300 gone.
Here are some pictures of the plants, and with entire row covered.   The insect netting also keeps out insects.  The insect netting is supported by PVC pipe made in a u=shape and stuck in the ground.  The netting is attached to the PVC pipe with some clips that I got at Harbor Freight for 69 cents a piece and they fit the pipe perfectly.
