After our week away from home, we went out back to check on the garden.
Before we left, I had noticed that the lettuce was starting to put out skinny little flower stalks. I remember being told once to keep these trimmed off to prevent the lettuce from going to seed, but since it was getting late in the year and it was looking unlikely that there would be any lettuce worth harvesting, I let them go.
Yesterday, I saw that there were some little yellow flowers. It was late in the day, though, and they seemed kind of closed up. So I waited until this afternoon to check on them again.
One in particular seemed more open.
