Oregano

By Sofia, Sep 10 2017 01:42PM

From the time Oregano is harvested to the final stage of processing to make it ready for use in the kitchen some months have gone by. The harvest begins in June, after the herb has just flowered. I prefer mine later in the summer, when it has soaked up the sun and the heat of the summer.
