I've got a bay leaf tree growing in my front yard,  If I don't trim it every month or so, my neighbor gets all hot and bothered and starts attacking it with some kind of giant kitchen shears.  I can't give the stuff away, I have to compost it.  Rosemary, on the other hand grows out of control as well, but I can trade a bushel or two of rosemary for a case of burgers with my local butcher.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the west coast (Wash state and B.C.) it rains, a lot.  Most people leave their car windshield wipers on the "on" position from Nov. to April and never touch it again.  The soil in my front yard won't tolerate much, its full of stones  and "presents" (bits of conduit, shingles, weeping tile, joist hangers, etc) the builders left behind 18 years ago.

Nothing like running out of the kitchen in the middle of something, dashing out in the rain, to pluck of a few leaves to toss into rice or whatever I'm cooking......
