I think the Greeks got it right when they described oregano as "joy of the mountain." This aromatic, ancient culinary herb, also referred to as "wild marjoram," originates from the hilly, Greek countryside, and is now grown all over the world. Oregano is a must-have in a culinary garden. Its pungent, spicy, slightly bitter flavor pairs well with almost any vegetable preparation. And just as easy to grow as chives, oregano is another go-to for the first-time gardener.
Fresh herbs add delightful flavor and fragrance to foods. You can't get any fresher than snipping leaves and springs from your own homegrown plants right before meal preparation. These are some of my favorite culinary herbs to grow year after year.
