The lettuce is getting taller and taller and...

I'm leaving a head of lettuce to bolt, so I can collect the seeds from it. I love how they look when they're working towards flowering, though! They get taller and taller and the leaves stretch apart from each other and then, poof! A little flower appears on top.

Mine is at about 25", currently, and growing up noticeably every day.

Here's a picture of it next to a 1.5 gallon jug:

I wish I could grow things! My attempt at growing something always results in me feeling guilty for killing yet another plant. But look at you go!
