 I've never grown head lettuce before.  Is it supposed to grow all tall like this?

Here is a picture of the whole bed it's in.

It looks like it's bolting and not going to form a head. I know in my parents garden we never could grow head lettuce because it would bolt too soon from the heat.

I am not sure. I have only planted salad greens. I have never tried growing head lettuce. I am planning on trying to grow Iceburg, and endive this year. We shall see how it goes.

 Yeah my leaf lettuce is growing like crazy.  I'm not sure if I should just pull it out and start again.

 Some you could do, but it would need to be one that is heat resistant and it would need a good amount of shade.  Or you could do it in a container and move it to shade, or indoors.
