Oregano is so wonderful to put into sauces, but I've always had a hard time growing it. So far this year, my one plant that I have in a container on my deck is doing very well. I'm shocked, actually. Mine always fail - but I never give up trying! This may be the year I do it! Well, I hope I didn't jinx the whole thing.

Did you know that in ancient Greece, that oregano was used as a remedy for narcotic poisons? The Romans believed it brought happiness at weddings, and was made into bridal wreaths. You learn something new everyday!
