Lettuce does not like heat and will get bitter and bolt (go to flower) if the temperatures are too warm. Cut off the flower stalks to extend the life of your lettuce. You can also bring indoors, if in a planter, and set in a sunny (preferably southern facing) window to extend the life of the plant.
