Never buy oregano again

Oregano

Every year, we get more oregano than we can ever use. I harvested this today, and it’s about about 1/20 of what we have. If you want oregano, come and get it! A batch like this (pictured) should probably last you a year … it’s very easy to dry and store. And we have lots!!! But of course, if you want to grow it yourself, just buy a start from a nursery or home improvement store, put it in an area where it will have room to grow and spread (full sun, light soil) and soon, you’ll have THIS problem – too much oregano! We actually let the surplus flower (to attract pollinators to the garden) and then we pull it, let it dry and burn it when we burn off our end-of-season plant materials (the ones that don’t get composted) … makes the fire smell positively delightful!
