In 60 seconds or so… I describe the process of ‘bolting’. Lettuce and other greens are cool weather crops. When the warm temperatures come, lettuce moves from leaf productions to flower and seed production. Very often the flavor of lettuce changes and it becomes bitter.

    I never heard of bolting greens before today. But I had wondered where the seeds for these plants came from. Thanks.

    A+ on the video… good to know.  Do you ever collect the seeds?  If so, could you/would you please show us how?  Thanks.

    can't i just cut the bolts off and let the plant grow while continually harvesting a few leaves a day?

    Yep heat does it. Setting up a shade cloth can help if the shade is cooler. Or inside can work.

    I knew something was wrong with my lettuce taste.It's very bitter and spicy too,like a super onion,but without onion taste.I'm in Florida,it's always hot here,so I have to start growing lettuce indoors then.
