Just got a Russian this past weekend and been reading allot about what to feed. We have just started with spring mix but I know we need some additional food to up the fiber. Was looking at the weeds we have out in the back yard and want to see if any of them are safe. Can you take a look at the pictures and let me know. Pretty sure the vine type one is a no go. 6C8B3E10-A6A6-4A32-9416-38B576A827D9.jpeg 9C03DE71-D077-44E8-A3E5-014871F21E53.jpeg 37F8A28D-4F81-44EB-BB47-589088A2AAB9.jpeg

After looking more into it now I am thinking the viney stuff is Purslane not spurge like I originally thought. If it is purslane we have allot of it, also reading I know Purslane has oxalates so if it is infact that how often should we feed it to Yoda our RT? Also thinking that the top picture is Mallow maybe?

I’m thinking you are right with your IDs. The larger leafy one does look like Mallow, the one that grows close to ground, like a succulent is Purslane.
