Collecting Lettuce Seed

My lettuce that was planted in the early spring has gone to seed and is now ready to collect. Hopefully you left a few plants in your garden to go to seed as well.

It does seem to take a long time to let things go to seed. First you will notice your lettuce shoots up a tall stalk. Then it will bloom.



Finally, it will all turn to fluff, at which point you want to collect it before it all scatters. I just cut if off, and put it in a paper bag to catch the seeds as they fall. I'll keep it hung out of direct sun where it won't get wet for a few weeks.

Thanks! This is helpful. Some of my lettuce is just at the flowering stage and I was wondering at what point I'd need to do something about the seeds.

Thanks for the information and the pictures are really helpful. It's difficult to find anything on seed collecting in gardening books.

Thanks Jeanne for the pictures of your lettuce going to seed. Mine bolted this year and I'd never collected the seeds before, not knowing what I should be looking for. Your pics helped me to see what they should look like. Thanks!
