My oregano plant has turned spicy! I planted it last year, and it tasted just like the dried oregano that I've used. I just picked some today and it is very spicy. What happened?
It is planted in full sun, and seems very vigorous and healthy.
You're complaining? That's how oregano should be. It's that 'full sun' it was born to lap up.
Ah, so much better than the boring old dried stuff that has sat on the supermarket shelves too long - isn't it? It's a pity that so many of our foods commercially available have lost their flavors in lieu of long shelf life...
