Lettuce Plants


Miss Optimism added on July 24, 2011 | Answered

In my garden I have red lettuce and romaine lettuce. The heat has caused them to grow very high and now sprouting flowers. I know from the past they are not quite ready for a full harvest. Been picking the leaves as needed; however, never seen them to sprout like this. Please help me with this, as I don't want to lose the crop. Does the constant heat make veggies react differently? Should I harvest early? Even my green and yellow peppers are growing before it's natural harvesting time. Thank You

It sounds like your lettuce is bolting; lettuce is a cool season crop. the peppers should be fine, just harvest them when they're ready, it has been a hot summer, more about the lettuce here:
