It is a problem. Lettuce and most of the other greens we use in salads are cool season crops and the seeds wont even germinate at temperatures above 80 degrees. i suggest you try again this winter when things cool down in Texas. There are warm season alternatives like New Zealand spinach, malabar spinach and purslane, but they have very different textures in salads than the traditional greens.
