Lettuce Trees?

IMG_0555Ok, so we were grateful for the glorious few days of hot weather20130724-082407.jpg 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.

Happy diggin’

    There are a couple of lettuce in my poly that look just like this – still taste great tho – beats the bland taste of supermarket stuff.

    Love your lettuce trees, or fairy statues! Mine did that a couple of years back, and I let them because seeds are always welcome, and the beggars grew almost as tall as me!! How tall are yours so far?

    My lettuce just died, I think it was lack of water. Maybe we could swap some of your lettuce for some of my tomatoes. 🙂

    • Would gladly give you some lettuce in place of your tomatoes. Mine seem to be sulking and not ripening due to lack of sunshine lately. July was a fab month, weather wise, whereas August seems to be grey and dull. Here’s going for some nice weather again to help the ripening process.
