After 3 weeks away from my crops, I returned home to a surprise: flowers. But not just any flowers, lettuce flowers. Apparently, lettuce have flowers.
I’m not sure why I’m so surprised by this – they’re angiosperms after all – but I guess seeing a 4-5 meter long stalk growing forth out of a little pot is somewhat startling, even if only due to the big plant-little pot contrast alone.
Anyways, I was hoping someone out there could suggest a few new crops to start growing so late in the season, preferably something that grows relatively quickly.
