Does anyone know if the soil is good enough to grow fresh oregano? I don't want to put all of this effort in watering and fertilizing my garden and planting oregano if nothing will actually end up growing.

I would say go for it! I have known Greeks that have grown fresh oregano in pots at home in the United States.

Here is an article that may help that talks about Greek oregano:

I would try growing it in a pot rather than in the ground. How cold does it get in Baltimore? Oregano can't stand cold, freezing weather and usually dies with a frost. So if you get frost, you should put the oregano in a pot and take it inside during the colder months.
 

Simple and smoky grilled octopus thats Greek style

I love grilled octopus. I like to make it with the whole head, and I know that some people don't like to prepare it that way, but I don't like to waste food. I make my octopus using a super simple marinade, just olive oil, lemon, sea salt, oregano, pepper and vinegar.

How to make kormos (chocolate salami)

How to make Greek red peppers (Florina peppers)

I prefer these grilled and drizzled with a little bit of dressing. I cook the peppers in the broiler until the skins blister. When the skins are blackened and cracked (about 2 to 3 minutes on each side), transfer to a big bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let them sit for about 10 minutes. The skins will detach completely, and the peppers will be very easy to peel. Mix oil and vinegar in a small glass jar. Add the pepper juices, garlic, mustard, chili pepper, and salt and mix well. While the peppers are still warm, arrange them in a deep dish and pour the dressing over them. Partially cover the dish and let it cool, then cover and refrigerate! They're ready to serve!
