Identify a flower

A plant that I can't recognize has come up this spring in our flower garden. It has a thick stalk with very small, yellow, daisy-like flowers. I was wondering if you might help us identify it. I'm attaching a picture but can take more at different angles if you like.

Blue spruce disease

We have 3 20 ft. Blue spruce in our yard. Last spring I noticed the white "bumps" on the needles. The infected needles start on the inside and bottom of the tree and work their way up and out. I sprayed the trees all summer with a fungicide at 2-3 week intervals and I thought that it slowed the disease but now this spring it seems to be very active again. We live at high altitude with desert like weather...any help would be greatly appreciated!

Canning vegetable broth

Meat broths all say 20 minutes at 10lbs for pints. I can't find any consistent answers for vegetable broth. A lot of sites say 75 minutes, which is the time for vegetable soup, which contains solids. Vegetable broth does not.

Is it safe to can vegetable broth at the 20 minutes?

If not, why is the same broth that was made with bones and meat able to be canned at a much shorter time?
