I planted black seeded simpson burpee lettuce and it has grown to be stocks and is going to seed. Is the lettuce on that stock still good to eat?

Washington County Minnesota lettuce

Lettuce that has gone to seed is still safe to eat, but can get tough and taste bitter. If the taste is still acceptable, go ahead and harvest it.
