I'm still harvesting lettuce as of August 18 from a June sowing of this plant, despite the unusually hot summer this year! Summer lettuce of course cannot compare to spring or fall lettuce, but the fact that I'm harvesting anything crisp and green when it's 98 degrees outside is amazing. Bolt resistant is the understatement of the year for this guy.
