It’s summer in Australia, the predicted weather for today is 37 degrees C (98 degrees F). Also, we are not getting much rain. We did get a little the other night, for the first time in a month, but the water tanks are still practically empty. So it’s not surprising that my lettuces have bolted.
I guess this looks a little messy, a little weedy, but i’m happy to let these go to flower. Up close, the flowers are very nice actually:
And after all, none of these lettuce plants were actually planted by me, they all came from seed after the last ones put out flowers. That’s how a couple of them even managed to escape the wine-barrel bed and grow between the pavers.
Hooray for self-sowing edibles!
