Ok, so we were grateful for the glorious few days of hot weather that we are had in the UK back in July. Perfect weather for a nice, crisp salad with home-grown lettuce, but look what happened to these? Bolting is an understatement!
They did look fab though and I left them to grow on in all of their glory just to see the architectural beauty. I hope that you agree they are truly amazing.
Oh, and I still managed to eat the leaves after I had witnessed and documented their fantastic display, without any bitter after taste.
