Hi Aaron, the pink one is red campion and not suitable, but the other is nipplewort, which is great ;)

Hi,

I have the weed below growing in my garden.  Can anyone identify it and let me know if it is safe to feed please?  I've gone through the tortoise table database and don't think I can spot it.

Thanks.

It doesn't look like an edible, but without a flower it's hard to say. I'd avoid until it flowers. Sorry not to be more helpful.
