Unfortunately, I am acquiring my very first tortoise at the start of winter! The ground is still green here, but within a month will be under several feet of snow. That said, I was wondering if it's okay to collect weeds and wildflowers and freeze them for use over winter?

Freezing can be a problem. If frozen, they are best crumbled while still frozen to add to other foods, such as prepared salads. Drying might be a better option, but this must be done slowly and naturally and never fast dried, which can alter the composition and even make them unsafe. Hope this helps.
