Blessed Lent to all.

 

Does anyone know of a good retailer for fresh bay leaves in the United States?  Our parish isn't very large, but we've only used about three or four handfuls of dried bay leaves in the past for Great and Holy Saturday.  I would like to get about two baskets worth of fresh bay leaves and mix them with a fragrant oil for this year, such as the HTM ones.  Any help would be appreciated.

I did some research and found that, if ordered early enough, Saint Barbara Orthodox Monastery in Santa Paula, California, can fulfill requests for bay leaves.  The nuns collect them from the monastery property.
