Romaine Lettuce Bolting

Yes, 3 Romaine Lettuce plants have been left to Bolt.  They look like weeds, don’t they?

These will self-pollinate & seeds will be ready in 2-3 weeks for collection/sowing.

The leaves will now be too tough and bitter for salads… But! I can always use them in Asian dishes like Sambal Stir-fry.

The main purpose, though, is to collect seeds from 2 and to allow self-sowing by 1.  Then come Spring, I will have another round of fresh Lettuce for my favorite green dish of Ceasar Salad and at the end of next Summer, I will have lots of seeds to sow for Fall and Winter Lettuce supply.

Then to allow a new bolting process again …
