I’ve never bothered to smell one; I don’t recall them smelling good on eggplants, another relative.

Hi Tom, I've been following your, Mark and Yvonne's advice for the past 5 years. I have a sulcata. The advice from Tortoise Forum has been how I've managed to bring up a healthy one. I want to ask though... this is a wonderful picture of that weed. You immediately got advice if its good or bad for sulcatas/torts. I know there is a written list that has been posted by you and friends but I'd like to ask if there could be a pictured list posted. I'm in southern New Mexico and like the rest of the desert weeds pop up. Now that we are in "Stay at home" situation, I can't run to my local Extension Agent and see what it is. Sometimes they don't even know. I just thought it would be a good idea to see pictures of weeds instead of just their names. I know it would be for me.

They all do have pictures with the names. "Name of Plant - wiki" and a picture pops right up, every time.

Besides that, we have a thread here on the Forum with pictures, and I add to it all the time. Look under Diet and food, sub forum Plant Identification.
