I have had 6 nice cos lettuce growing for a few weeks now and getting a good crop of lettuce leaves. All of a sudden, one of them has just dropped dead – just laid down all its leaves and is a sad lettucey blob on the ground. Only thing I can think is it got a bit hot – I have read (subsequently) that lettuce don’t necessarily like the midday sun. So I am attributing it to lettuce sunstroke and will plant my next lettuce in a different spot – but if anyone has an alternative theory I would love to hear it
