Lettuce Harvest

The two varieties of lettuce that I'm growing that were found to do best in warmer temperatures have proven to do very well. Both the Pirat and Nevada have resisted bolting so far.  The Pirat is now at its limit for heat tolerance, while the Nevada, which happened to be partly shaded by its neighboring plant is showing no signs of bolting.
