Our temps here in NW GA are going down to 39° tonight after raining all day, and 36° tomorrow night. I was wondering if I needed to protect my oregano or will it be okay? Thanks a bunch!!

You oregano will be just fine. I'm in the same zone as you, and you probably have the same wild temp swings as we do. My oregano started growing actively around the middle of February. After that we has several deep temp dips at nighttime and it didn't hurt it at all.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
