Yeah, been studying the tortoise table and other sources. Finally tried it, Geronimo wasn't that big a fan, lol. Trying different things for variety. He did eat enough for me to go ahead and next summer grow a few.

I have about 8 or so artichoke plants I grow the artichoke for myself and I trim the leaves from the plant and feed to my tortoises it's a thistle after all

Pretty expensive tortoise food, but whatever for our precious shelled friends, right?
You might see if you local specialty produce suppliers have cardoons; it's a leafy artichoke relative that is much cheaper per unit of weight.

If you grow tye plant, it makes a giant 4ft plant that has lots of leaves that are free, and my tortoises all love them!

I asked my friend Google to show me pictures of "Tye" plant and he changed it to "the" plant. What is a Tye plant?
