After successful cultivation of flowering plants I added a few vegetables to my container gardening. These included Brinjals, Tomatoes, Pumkins, Okra, Cilantro, Colocasia and.Origanum. Smooth Gourd was also successfully cultivated but not in a container but in raised bed using bricks. Pumkin could not be cultivated successfully in a container. Cilantro also did not do well probably because of shallow container I used. I will modify the methods of cultivation and hope to succeed. Oregano is Origanum vulgare. It is hardy and can be easily grown by cuttings. The color of the leaves is light green. The aroma is so strong that even a gentle touch to the plant spreads the aroma around. The taste is fragrant, spicy, pungent and slightly bitter. The plant owes its usefulness as a culinary herb to its volatile oil. It is mixed with salads and the leaves are popularly used to make Bhajias. I have also planted Green Bean and Moth Bean.
Taste and quality wise there is no substitute to home grown vegetables, and I have taken the matter seriously. Hope to share many new vegies in the near future.
