Lettuce update

I thought I would show an update of our crazy lettuce. I picked almost all of it before we went to the cottage and it filled our lettuce needs for a few days. When we returned, it was pretty wilted but it seems to have bounced back albeit the experience has turned it slightly bitter.

It also has unexpectedly grown into large stalks. Is this normal for romaine lettuce? I've only grown mixed leaf lettuce before so I have no idea if this is usual. The one time I had lettuce grow into a stalk was when it went to seed after I left it untouched in the garden for months. Hopefully it can avoid going to seed for at least another few weeks. 

Don't turn bitter too
