Something is wrong with my lettuce

Hi everyone,

Something is wrong with my lettuce. I have lettuce growing in two beds in my garden and in some containers. They all have this problem of sunk in areas.

Some are direct seeded, some are sown indoors and transplanted. I have 10 different varieties of lettuce and they all have the problem. Earlier this year I ripped out all the lettuce in the yard, waited a few weeks and resowed. They all have it again.

They can be view at this link:!i=1924972229&k=v99xZ7W

Or the pics below. Any Ideas???

Needs more water. If needed, rig some shade.

I wish that was true. I live in Washington and we have had record rain fall over the past two months. Running from 2 to 5 inches per week.

This thing hits the lettuce in the greenhouse where I control all the water and outside.

I wish it was that easy. Could it be too much water?

RE: Something is wrong with my lettuce

Perhaps it's typical of the kind?

RE: Something is wrong with my lettuce

I am growing 10 different varieties and they are all doing this.
