We planted Greek Oregano the spring of 2015 and were delighted by the growth and flavor of it. It shared the same bed with the rosemary and didn’t mind the high temperatures and humidity of the 2016-2017 summer. I really enjoy making an oregano tea! Our oregano lives all year long in its southwestern bed.
It is a wonderful herb in many recipes. Oregano also has antibacterial properties, so I put oregano leaves in my vinegar based household cleaner. It is a fun and fragrant way to clean your house combined with the orange peels, cinnamon sticks, and rosemary! You can see the oregano leaves in the far right jar. (These jars need to be strained and the month old contents discarded. The finely strained vinegar is then bottled up in cold storage while some is put into spray bottles for household cleaning.)
