Oregano is a very well known herb over here in North America these days, but it has its culinary origins in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. It's the secret ingredient in your grandma's tomato sauce! It goes really well with poultry and other meats too. If you want to try to grow Oregano at home there are several different types of Oregano to choose from: Golden Oregano, Syrian Oregano, Purple Oregano. Just plant in a sunny spot outside or in a pot by a sunny window. Water sparingly and let it do its thing.
