This common wild flower of cultivated land and waste spaces resembles the Forget-Me-Not in its habit and foliage, but the tiny, pale-blue flowers are much smaller than those of the Forget-Me-Not.  It has for centuries been consumed by humans and is fine to feed to your tortoise as part of a mixed diet.
