Oregano

Post  greatgranny on 9/6/2016, 6:32 pm

I cut off quite a bit of oregano this afternoon.  Some of it has blossoms.  I am going to hydrate so want to know what to do with the blossoms.  I haven't ever let it get this far before but this year has been so wet that is has gone crazy.

What should I do - cut them off or leave them?

I'd cut them off.

Also, keep in mind that once herbs start blooming, they will often get rather bitter. You might want to try a leaf or two...

I am going to finish dehydrating and then just take off the leaves.  I never keep the stems because, yes, they are bitter.  I had already started the dehydrating before I saw your reply.  Thanks

Thanks for the reminder, Marie.  I am babysitting a friend's pot plants while she is away and I noticed some blooms on the basil.  I had better get that seen to tomorrow.
