Can someone help identify this herb?

My husband picked this up from our CSA and neither of us have any clue what it is... any ideas?

    The bottom leave look a little like oregano leaves in the first picture.

      After looking at images of oregano buds, I think you may be right. I guess we've never seen it before it's fully budded before? Not sure if the taste seems quite like oregano but perhaps that changes as well? Thanks!

      It's marjoram, closely related to oregano.
