    Since they were in a seed mix for tortoises, I wouldn't hesitate to feed them to my tortoises, but I don't know what they are, sorry.

    Looks like some kind of sweet basil and perhaps a deadnettle. If I'm right then they are safe feeds, if I'm wrong and it's something else then it's most likely still safe to feed if it came from a tort seed mix

    It looked like a basil to me as well. But I am wondering if it might be some very young chicory or French dandelions (very young!), which seems more likely. The edges of one or two of the largest leaves look like they might be starting to notch out. Safe either way. @Louise66, you can rub a leaf between your fingers; basil would be highly fragrant..

    I also think deadnettle on the second.
