Collecting Lettuce Seed

I let some of my 'Summer Glory' lettuces go to seed. I noticed today the achene had put out its little parachutes, so I gathered some of the heads, tied them together, and left them in the dry, hot sun. I'll hang them upside-down in a plastic bag until the seeds fall out. Then, in a plastic baggie and the fridge for the summer.
