Harvesting oregano for drying
My oregano was slightly yellowish and somewhat dry when I harvested it today. Perhaps I waited a bit too long to harvest for drying. Will it be ok to dry it for future use?

Yes, you may have waited a bit long to harvest.
I like to pick and dry Herbs throughout the growing season, while they are actively growing for the best flavors is best.
Late in the season the plants can become less flavorful and have less oils in them.
