    Hi guys I need help with a plant ID! I want to let my tortoise roam my backyard but before I do I want to make sure the backyard is plant safe. My aunt said she planted these years ago but have forgotten what they are. So I need a little help! 20180612_182304.jpg 20180612_182312.jpg 20180612_182304.jpg

    I think it is swiss chard.

    What kind of tortoise? What size? Its usually best to contain them within an enclosure. A back yard can be full of unexpected hazards and escape routes.

    I think if not chard it might be collards. In the same family either way and safe as part of a varied diet.

    A crucifer, for sure. So, in the family of cabbage, collards, kale, etc.

    Maybe really deformed brussel sprouts....impacted by no fertilizers, poor water, and warm/hot weather.
