They are both culinary herbs. The first one looks like oregano, the second one with the larger leaves is garden sage.

You can tell for sure by pinching the leaves to see if they are truly aromatic herbs. If so, they should be easy to grow, Most herbs don't require rich soil, but they do like good drainage and sunshine.

Before you eat them, be sure of what they are. Any nursery will be able to confirm their identity.
