2 lettuces in 1 pot at 19 weeks

I though it was interesting how these two plants grew so differently.  Both are in the same pot, but one stayed nice and compact and the other one grew around the first and really stretched out.  Once it started to stretch it continued to stretch.  We have been picking leaves off of both for awhile now.  You can see from the small brown marks where we have taken leaves.  The one that stretched out has run into the ceiling on my bay window and actually is starting to flower now.  I’ll be cutting it down soon and I’ll leave the compact one going.  There are no signs of flower on this one yet.
