My romaine was getting ready to bolt (it was tasting bitter, and the leaves released a milk-white liquid when cut), so I cut off all of the plants level with the ground, and tossed them into the compost. I didn't uproot them...for no particularly good reason. I see now that many of them are starting to re-grow heads.
Can any good come of this? Will the new lettuce taste OK, or will it also be bitter from the start?
