As of last weekend, mid-March 2015, raised to four layers of stones. Lots of organic matter, soil and small stones were added at the back of these bigger stones.
Another view as of November 2014, three layers.
Stones re-arranged and a 4th layer of stones were added, mid-March 2015.
And in another side of the farm, as of August 2014....
Last weekend, we added more organic matter, soil and small stones behind those big stones that have been slightly rearranged. Photos as of mid-March 2015,
August 2014, six layers of stones in this portion, the main "blocking force" against flash flood in this part of the farm.
Mid-March 2015, seven layers of stones plus thicker deposit of soil and smaller stones behind them. In the photo is Doy, I hired him for one day extra work.
Cleaning up litter falls that will soon be washed out by flash flood. Before...
...After, Doy patiently raked and gathered these many dried leaves and branches up, behind those stones. There, they will decompose soon and become new rich topsoil that new roots of the trees will "consume".
