Yellow leaves on spinach & romaine

I don't get it. Last year I had so much spinach & romaine (planted from seed) by this time that I didn't have to buy it at the store. But this year, they just don't seem the same. The spinach is growing, but not as fast, and yellow leaves at bottoms. Romaine is struggling with only a few plants looking good, yellow leaves too. Is it the weather? We have had a lot of rain & cool temps, but I thought these 2 liked cooler temps? Help! :roll:

I think your plants need some nitrogen.
