I planted Roamine Lettuce back in November, as it seemed to be one thing that tolerated the cold. Now the stalks have grown so long that I really have Romaine vines instead of the heads I was expecting. They won't stand up straight! When they lay on the ground they invite the snail army from my neighbors yard. The stalks are probably 2-3 long now.
What should I do with them?
Is it normal for them to lay on th ground like that?
How do I get seeds from them so I can start again?
I really havn't eaten much as the amount of snail slime grossed me out even after washing. I've gotten rid of most of the snails now, and would like to keep the lettuce around. I've probably cut 3lbs off of slimy snail eaten leaves. My composte pile is full of lettuce.
