My dad told me this was a bay leave plant but I'm suspicious of it. I don't believe this is bay leaf and I don't want to dehydrate a bunch of weeds. Please help!

Did he say bay? Or basil? Bay laurel is usually a tree, what you have looks to be basil - a weed true, but smells so lovely! Tastes so good! If you are drying it, hang it upside down to dry. Ask your dad which basil its supposed to be... Welcome! Thumbs up
