It’s the last full week of August. It doesn’t mean that Summer is over yet, or the gardening season is close to being over (does it really ever end?) but with a few months of growth your herb container might be getting out of hand. Your basil is green and lush, your mint spreads the best smells around the garden and your oregano has a mind of it’s own. Oregano grows.. and grows.. and grows.. and takes over. Nothing can stop our oregano, including a harsh Winter. Somehow it didn’t care about the amount of snow or freezing temperatures we had because once Spring hit it started growing again.
