On Twitter, SnarkyVegan was talking about how she was having a hard time growing Oregano from seed. I also had a hard time growing herbs from seed too last year, so I can totally relate to the frustration. Until I realized that I needed to be more patient, many herbs take a long time to germinate and don't have a high germination rate, so I started to put more seeds per pot. Especially Rosemary, Oregano and Lavender, they are notorious as slow germinators. (Is that a word?) I finally had some luck with the Mediterranean Oregano from Burpee. These seeds took about 3 weeks to germinate, but once it did, it was a really good grower! I had this pot sitting on my enclosed porch all winter. And look at it now! I love cooking with Oregano, especially putting it in my eggs and pasta. The smell is so amazing! I am going to start drying it so I can always have it available in the pantry. Totally awesome!
