    So I haven’t quite gotten good at identifying my grasses yet. I’m getting ready to mow and want to snag some grass/weeds for sully before I do. These weeds/grass is prominent in my yard. Can anyone tell me what it is so I know? TIA

    1 and 2 look like smooth sow thistle to me (good tort food)
    The other is some yummy looking grass.

    It’s sow thistle, safe. It’s a bit spotted from bugs, your proof it’s pesticide free! :)

    Can’t help with the grass.

    In pic 1, I see three good things, sow thistle (like others said), hawksbeard (on the left), and geranium (on the right and top). The grass is yummy to my torts.
