Oh no is this bolting? Does this mean I pull all the salad mix up? Can the bunnies still eat it? Can I replant? What do I do?

Try a nibble, you might find them very tasty. Some times a quick saute or wilting is all they need and sometimes thrown into s stir fry or stew. You know broccoli is just a bolted mustard plant......

Oh I didn't know that! Does bolting affect the entire plant or just that little bunch?

Bolting affects the entire plant but some lettuce varieties seem to go bitter very quickly when starting to bolt but others the leaves have remained good til they flower. I'm not sure what happens after flowering as I pull them & plant something else. When it gets warm lettuce bolts & gets bitter usually very quick - it is a cool season crop.

They are still good bunny food. Around her they become goat food.

Hmmm, so should I keep letting them grow and cutting bits for the bunnies or is there a lettuce I can replant that will like heat? Its been in the 60s and 70s, not too hot yet.

I would replant the kind you like, then after it starts growing good, cover with cheesecloth. I've been using a coat hanger, skew into sort of a circle, and use cloths pins to attach.
Or, you could get some 'Jerico' lettuce seeds. They were developed in Israel, for growth in the heat. I liked the flavor.

They are all in the same family. Have you ever grown broccoli raab? It is very much like the mustard greens we grow for the leaves but broccoli and raab we grow for the flower buds. Mustard flowers are good eating, a little more delicate texture but spicier than broccoli, very much like broccoli raab.
