In our new herb garden we have planted three marjoram plants. We have never grown marjoram and to be honest I have not cooked much with it either. None the less it looked great and went well with the other plants we selected. I noticed today that the plants had started to flower. As I looked a bit closer I also noticed that the tops of the plants were growing in the shape of a square. This baffled me to say the least as marjoram leaves have round shape with a size in between that of thyme and oregano.
I can only assume this is one of the wonders of nature that few of us ever see, think about, or care to notice. I love it. It is different and thought provoking, and in cooking that is how ideas are formed and future classic dishes created.
