The Return of Oregano

I planted this oregano from seed months ago. The seed came from Ilsa of RamblingLA's prolific garden. In my garden, they took a long time to sprout. So long, I thought they might not make it with our changing weather.

I would gently check the new shoots with a gentle finger pinch to verify by smell they were indeed oregano as I weeded. And the plants remained small for such a long time. In the last week, they seem to have turned a corner and are finally growing.

I can smell the simmering red sauce from here.
