These lettuce plants are a couple of years old and are going to seed. The plant's with the flowers are about 5 feet tall and have a bunch of yellow flowers and flower buds. The leaves are a lot smaller than the newer lettuce plants that have larger leaves on the bottom of their stalks.
The lettuce is planted in the school garden and gets full sun.
This plant was chosen by a 5th-grade group at John G (The Pink Butterflies). These are the questions based on their observations: 1. Why are the flowers yellow? 2. We saw a very small white bug and a jumping spider on the plant. What is the jumping spider doing? 3. Are jumping spiders pollinators?
