    Default mexican oregano

    I planted a few plants several years ago and they did OK. This year they came back with a vengence.
    Any suggestions on what to do with the excess? I imagine that the more I cut it back,the more it will grow like a weed.

    Never heard of Mexican Oregano. Are you able to harvest then dehydrate it for future use?

    I'm not sure what kind of oregano I have but it is aggressive, to. I dry a cookie sheet or two full of it for use over the winter and just pull it up and compost whatever gets out of hand.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Put a little table out in front of your house and sell it. Spices can be expensive and some people love the fresh stuff. You can put the oregano out with a sign and sell it by the bunch. Tell people to use the honor system and charge what you want. Or gift it. Plenty of people would love that.

    I agree with the suggestions to share what you're not using, especially if you're just going to compost the excess.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I will try to dry some for later use.I'm debating on getting a dehydrator.I guess I should start trolling the thrift shops again.
    I would gladly give some of it away but I am the "odd ball" in my circle of friends. They barely grow flowers much less herbs. I don't live in one of those neighborhoods either.
