Bolted Lettuce

Standard

If you get a dry hot sunny period make sure you keep watering your lettice as much as possible or else you run the risk of it “bolting“.  This means it shoots up tall and begins to create flower buds.

Bolted lettuce tastes AWFUL!  It is so bitter that it really is best avoided if at all possible.  When my lettuces bolt I pull them out and compost them.
