This photo that I showed you earlier in the week had my bolting lettuce in it. It was filled with heat resistant lettuce. But I guess no lettuce can stand 103F. Even what wasn't bolting was bitter. So I pulled it all out and dumped it into the compost pile. It was a sad loss of three to four pounds of lettuce. What I want to know is how the farms keep producing lettuce all summer long. I had a batch of lettuce that was in the coolest part of the garden in almost full shade. It bolted too.
I had slightly too large replacements for my boc choy. I should have pulled it a week ago before the heat, but once the heat hit I didn't want to pull it. I figured I'd let it have a few days of relative coolness to recover. But it all got pulled and its replacements seem happy enough. If a tad big when transplanting. At least Asian greens can still be enjoyed after the heat. They do get more mustardy, but they are still very tasty. I sent most of them over to my townhouse mates along with a big pile of cukes. I kept a couple for myself.
