Years ago, before I moved to the farm, Nigel and I drove out to the town of Tomales for a Sunday morning excursion.  After enjoying our treats at the fabulous Tomales Bakery, we walked up the street to Mostly Natives Nursery where we found true Bay Laurel.  These trees were planted at the very end of the farm.  They are looking really healthy and they have grown quite tall.  The Bay trees are a good example of a tree that disrupts the wind but also produces something we can harvest.
