    Wonderful idea with the mesh bags @Prairie Mom ! I have been wanting to do similar but am too paranoid about the bad weeds that do grow in my yard..... have you come across this concern at all?

    I recognize most of my weeds so I know I'm okay. Oddly enough I do get the occasional genuine original deadly night shade! I say cut and dry your grass any way, because most stuff is tort safe, you can pick any bad stuff as you cut, and you can always double check before feeding the dry stuff to your tortoise.
