Welcome Oregano!

If you've read Celestine Prophecy, it talks a lot about awareness of your environment (that is, if I remember the book correctly).  It also talks about meaningful coincidences.  It's one of my favorite books.  Well since I've reopened my gardening eyes a few months ago, I've been seeing a lot more herb sources.  For example, just the other week, I was buying water containers from a supplier.  However, since I was a bit early, they were still closed and I had to wait outside on the street. 

Just across the street my delivery boy identified a sprawling plant as Oregano.  He was so sure it was Oregano and so swore one of the workers also outside.  How cool is that?  And so we helped ourselves to a couple of big cuttings.  In fact, it wasn't even a cutting since we had no tools.  We just broke off some branches.  I smelled the leaf.  It did smell like an herb!  When I got home, I just plugged them in to the erstwhile tomato seedling bed (where most of them died).  Now about a week later, it looks like the Oregano will be just fine.  Still looks as strong as it did last week when I plucked it.  Before, whereas I just had an Oregano Thyme, now I have a true Oregano


  1. I like gardening and wish your blog will help me to solve my questions. My first question: I want to know about tissue culture. Would you please tell me something about it?

    Thank you

    Donner: Stolen oregano. Tsk, tsk. Baka sumakit ang tyan mo pag ginawa mong tsaa yan. :P

  3. Hi Maya. If I read something about it, I'll go write something. But as of now, your guess is as good as mine.

    Donna, it wasn't stolen! It's pruning to help the mother plant branch out. So in a way, I was doing them a favor.


No spamming please. ;-)
