Soon after my lettuce began to bloom, I noticed visitors.
It seems that honey bees LOVE lettuce blossoms!
Every morning now, there are clouds of honey bees, drifting in and out of the lettuce blossoms.
Then I noticed just the other day that the lettuce seeds were beginning to mature. This morning, as I walked through my living room, I stopped. That sound! I was sure I heard the chirping and tweeting of birds....almost inside the house!A hasty glance (all I got) was enough to confirm what my ears were telling me: there are now birds as well in the lettuce plants, breakfasting on the ripening seeds.
So I'm all for going to seed!
