Halgrimson: Experiment with the versatility of bay leaves

“The Bay leaves are of as necessary use as any other in the garden or orchard, for they serve both for pleasure and profit, both for ornament and for use, both for honest civil uses and for physic, yea, both for the sick and the sound, both for the living and the dead; ... so that from the cradle to the grave we still have use of it, we still have need of it.”  – John Parkinson, from “A Garden of Pleasant Flowers,” “Paradisi in Sole Paradisus Terrestris,” London (1629)
