With the sun shining on my patio now, my lush mustard green suddenly started bolting. Vegetables bolt for a reason. When the temperature gets too hot, it abandons growth and produces flowers and seeds instead. This is just nature's way of producing the next generation asap.

The coleus is also losing its shape and beautiful foliage. I've stopped nipping the flower buds. Now I just let the flowers grow any way they like.
