TIL what we think of as a daisy or sunflower ‘flower’ is actually a composite of many flowers. The ‘petals’ are actually ray flowers; and the center is composed of many tiny disc flowers. This is true of all flowers in the Asteraceae family. homeguides.sfgate.com/cha…

Why is stevia so sweet, when no other Asteraceae plants are? How does steviol serve the plant?

Stevia is a fascinating plant, but almost all Google searches have lead me to articles discussing its effects via consumption. What I haven't been able to figure out is how this magical, million-dollar component, steviol glychoside, somehow ended up in an unassuming plant in the sunflower family. According to a very cursory search (on Wikipedia), these compounds are only known to be found in Stevia Rebaundiana, the closely related Stevia Phlebophylla, and the unrelated Rubus Chingii (I've also seen it called Rubus Suavissimus) from the Rosaceae family, for some reason. So what gives? Why do so few organisms seem to possess this quality? And what is its purpose for the health of the plant? Keep in mind that my knowledge of botany is extremely limited, so if I've made any asinine mistakes in my wording, that would be why.

Can chickens eat most plants from the asteraceae family?

I have read they can eat dandelions (all parts). But I have an abundance of many different false dandelions and other plants that look similar. Does anyone know if I can feed to my chickens?

How to form a salt-cured pork, Leafy asteraceae green and the red fruit from the Solanum lycopersicum held within a baked flour, water loaf also known as a BLT (Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich).

Firstly, we will work on the long term. Buy a Piglet! There are many places you can legally and illegally buy a Piglet. I will only be dealing with reputable sources, but you do you. Once your Piglet has arrived you have to wait… a very, very long time. Your young pig will need to be fed, an optimal diet for a growing pig varies depending on the species of swine you use, do your research because I cannot delve into the neaunces of every known (and unknown) pig species.

Soon you will be faced with a difficult choice. Save your swine as a friend or family pet, or slaughter the damn thing for delicious bacon! For this tutorial you will have to choose the latter. The prime age for bacon piggies is 4 months to a year of age. The slaughter of pigs can be humane but if you don't swing that way, get creative! Just don't use chemicals or completely butcher it yet. This is for your own safety and meat enjoyment.

Now it’s butcher time! Bacon is usually taken from less fatty parts of the pig like the pork belly or back cuts, but feel free to experiment. After you have your bacon strips you have to cure it to get that distinct taste. There are two main ways to cure you heaven strips, wet or dry curing. For wet curing you submerge your bacon into brine with added sodium nitrate (to help the colour and speed up curing). Dry curing involves coating the bacon in pure crystallized sodium nitrate (salt). After you do this you must leave the bacon to dry for a few weeks or months in cold air.

Now, let's move on to our lettuce. Use whatever variety you want, it's personal preference! Lettuce prefers to be in loose, nitrogen rich soils with a PH of 6.0 - 6.8, they also require full sunlight to avoid freezing, which is a real risk (ideal temperature is 16 - 18°C. DO NOT EXCEED 24°C OR GO BELOW 7°C ). Harvest your lettuce after around a year of growth, you will know its done when you have a large head of lettuce protruding from the ground. Once harvested do not store the lettuce with fruits as they release a ripening agent called, “ethylene gas” which will cause your lettuce to spoil, instead store at 0°c for maximum life span.

Tomatoes can be grown in the same way as your lettuce, they aren't super picky. But is recommended to grow them in green houses to stay warm. Check the species you use for specifics, use GMO’s I don’t care.

For our bread we will need a few ingredients, mainly flour and water along with few minor ingredients like yeast and fruits if feeling like it. Fl
