By the D-lions you will also find these:

Wild lettuce (same family)

Now what I have done, because they are as pesty as the d-lion, is harvest them!

They are an alternative to Opium.

Quote:It is known for having mild sedative and pain relieving properties, due to a milky substance called lactucarium which is found in the leaves and stem of the plant. The effects of lactucarium are considered to be similar to opium, though the substance contains no actual opiates. These effects earned wild lettuce the common name of opium lettuce.


During the old wars when they ran out of Laudanum they gave folks wild lettuce.

It is pretty strong.

I don't expect you to start this as your next big harvest, just fyi.

I get both in my yard in abundance and wish I could harvest them. Landlord is a freak for spraying chemicals though.Never mind he KNOWS we had a cancer scare recently. Eyeroll

If you were interested, you can grow them indoors from seed!

If they don't need a lot of sunlight(trailers are notorious for tiny windows) I might do that. I've read up on wild lettuce lately and I think I could benifit from it.

My next door neighbor has a love affair with Roundup.
Every tiny weed that appears in her yard or shrub beds, etc.:  Roundup is her solution.  :(
I've given her information on all the bad effects of Roundup but to no avail.
Add to that ... Her husband has cancer.  
Yet all my information falls on deaf ears.  tears

Some people want instant results when all they really need is scalding hot water and vinegar.
We're taking Loki to the vet next week,he has a lump next to his rib cage that has me concerned. I am OCD about household chemicals and his diet but when he does get loose,he loves the ditch. I know that the chemicals get into the groundwater which gets into the ditch so I'm a bit worried.

I've actually showed her how she can kill weeds (as in the gravel between her house and mine, etc.) with boiling hot water.
She even did that. For one day. Then back to Roundup. She explained the hot water method "takes too long". CgTFBpM

Also, I pray your doggie doesn't have cancer. Tissue
