I was curious if all of these are safe for our sulcata to eat, as I'm not 100% certain what they are.

I do know that #6 is some type of hosta- but wanted to double check that it was safe for him to eat. ;)

Number two is horseweed, inedible and a horrid weed; pull it ASAP before it grows eight foot high.

Number three is some plantain going to see (the spikes) and something that might be a horsebill geranium. Safe.

The fourth picture looks like narrowleaf plantain to me (again, with the seed spikes) and the one with the heart shaped leaves looks like violet, although I always like to see a few purple flowers to be sure. Both safe.

Thank you! I will be sure to pull the horseweed- there are quite a few of them around here.
