Can anyone help me ID these? If so, are they safe for my Sulcata? Sorry if these are easily identifiable, I know ZERO about plants and weeds... I had these in a different thread, but I think they got lost in the mix, so I figured I'd start a new thread. Oh, the last 2 are just for fun ; ) lol... Thanks guys...

1. Clover
4. Looks like a walnut seedling. Could be another kind of nut tree.

I haven't been able to find any info on the leaves being edible. All info so far focuses on the nuts. Hopefully someone else will give it a shot.

#1 is clover
#2 looks like a young maple tree
#3 unknown
#4 a young tree, don't know the species
#5 sow thistle
#6 unknown
#7 unknown
#8 unknown
#9 broad leaf plantain
#10 strawberry
#11 sow thistle
#12 sow thistle

I would suggest buying a book about local weeds and taking it out in the field when searching for foods for your tortoise. Those plants that you are unsure of you can reference in the book, write the scientific name down and then search on the internet to find out if it is toxic or not.

It's hard to tell from the photo but the one pic with the flower buds looks like Sow Thistle.
If it is it's great.
See if this looks familiar.
