Saving Lettuce Seeds

My lettuce bolted a while back (started going to seed). It grows up quite tall and the leaves get VERY bitter.
 As the little flowers open up and make themselves into little dandelion looking fluffs, you can harvest the seed by pulling the white fluff away from the plant–there's little seeds attached to each! So nifty!
Part of my bounty for next year!
