Clover (White): This plant produces round-headed flowers from May-October. DO NOT FEED red clover


Dandelion: They can increase the volume of urine, and it also can increase the volume of defecation (poop)


Grass: Please make sure it is clean and new grass, also make sure it hasn't been sprayed with chemicals or soiled by any wildlife animals. DO NOT feed grass clippings from lawnmowers as they tend to heat up quickly.


Groundsel:


Sow Thistle:



Shepherd's Purse:


Plaintain: This plant produces long and spike flower from May-October

I don't have any of these plants in my garden and I wouldn't risk my babies to grab them from other place, because they might infected or sprayed. That's why I give them veggies, pellets, hay and occasional fruits like cranberry or strawberry, but not as regularly because of their high volume in sugar.

Dandelions are higher in calcium, so watch their intake.

i am not sure about the rest.

I live in a condo comples, and we all have small garden spaces in front of and behind our condos. I think the others think I'm nuts letting the dandelions grow. I pick them regularly for the kids to eat, as they love dandelions. The are high in vitamin c and calcium, so they can only get them in limited number, but it's quite a treat when they get them.

I'll look around for the other plants, this spring. I doubt I can grow clover without it taking over the garden, but I think I've grown Groundsel before, in my last garden where I had a wildflower section, and Shepard's Purse grows wild here, any where it finds dirt. It cuts down on the amount of fresh veggies I have to buy in the summer, when the wild things are available.

Nice list. i've always wondered what those plants looked like since i have hamsters & rabbits which can eat those things.
btw what does red clover look like? I have tiny little clovers in my yard that are purple & green and they have tiny yelllow flowers sometimes. Are those red clover (i know they arent red but theres lotsa misnomer names)
