How to grow Cos Lettuce from seed

In this video I show my cos lettuce starts. The ones that got more sun are much larger. A more even distribution to get the light is needed. All these starts came from one baby cos lettuce that I had given to me at a local market. I let it bolt to go to flower (which the bees loved). You can see in the video all the stalks that I’ve already harvested seeds from and I’ve only got a couple more flower heads left that I haven’t harvested that have seeds about to form. Once they seed heads dry out – they can then be picked (I use small scissors) and separated and stored in a cool dry space for when you want to plant them in the future. Don’t forget to label your saved seeds.
