Chipper Story for Granny J and Nancy: Part 5

Here's my old compost heap, before I started yesterday. There were the same ficus branches both on top, and in a layer under some orchid tree leaves. I took it down three layers yesterday, then decided to let the lower area dry out a bit before I tackled it again. Way too much moldy particulatey stuff.

Here's how I left it yesterday. I think this is the last leaf layer before I hit some big branches.

This is the last big pile of ficus. Two views: one toward the house, showing it from a blue agave...

and a more head-on view. The stack was about six feet high, six deep, and ten wide.
