The Oregon State University partnered with the Oregon Food Banks Learning Gardens Programme has asked for my permission to reprint this photo
in the booklet that will accompany the courses.
I can only guess that they will be featuring this photo in a lesson called 'How Not to Grow Lettuce!'
It is a rather nice picture of bolted lettuce though, and because they asked nicely, I gave my permission for them to use it.
In 2012 the lettuce was all eaten by slugs before it had a chance to bolt, or even grow, for that matter.
