How to Save Seeds
Lettuce is a self pollinator, so you can grow different varieties 50 ft apart. Lettuce needs to be about 2 inches tall when the cold weather moves in so planting will largely depend upon location. The plants are them mulched heavy until next year when they will begin to bolt upwards. Once they do bolt the lettuce can no longer be eaten as it will be bitter. The plant sends forth a stalk into the air 4 to 5 ft high. Then flowers appear and continue to open for over a month and then the seeds also start coming in. Watch the plant for feathery seeds and then collect them by shaking over a paper bag.
