nees help harvesting lettuce seeds
we had one lonely lettuce spring up this year, obviously self seeded from last year's crop. I figured this had to be a hardy surviving kind of fellow, so I let it grow, hoping to collects it's seeds then plant them next season. But I don't know what lettuce seeds are supposted to look like, and I don't see anything that looks like the seeds I seeded last year. ( Well, I had three kinds, all looking a bit different from each other....).
This one is now in the stage where it has little fuzzballs around a small head, somewhat like dandelions, just much smaller. I know that those fuzzballs on the dandelions are the seeds and to be dealt with before they spread all over. So, are these fuzzballs on the lettuce the actual seeds???
Should I be collecting these??? The fuzz itself, or what is underneath?
Thanks for tolerating my dumb question
