I've always had a garden. I enjoy a challenge! I love the rewards when it all comes together. And I learn something new nearly every day. Perfect 🌻

What are those yellow flowers you ask? These are what you get when you let a Little Gem lettuce go to seed!

That would be a yes Jayne! There’s method in my madness. I’m going to see if I can get seeds from it @jaynehynesburton

This is what happens when you let a lettuce bolt! I call it the Pagoda 😂. Looks like buds hiding inside. Might get seeds.

Monty says the leaves are bitter once they’ve bolted. But I’ve picked some and they were fine @charlotte
