I need a weed ID

Tempe, AZ(Zone 9b)

I want to let my tortoises graze the neighbor's weed/lawn. But I need to make sure there are no poisonous weeds. There are two I can't identify.

Is the first one that succulent flower that Becky grows and eats? What is the second?

The last one and the one before is spiderling. AFAIK not poisonous.

I can confirm:
Portulaca oleracea
Boerhavia coccinea

Thanks all!
