Pecan-Stuffed Mushrooms

I asked my gardener to do a compost bin for me, then went to town. And when I came back, I said, “W, this looks like a celebration of Day of the Dead!”(Dia de los Muertos!) It looks about to be about two meters, same size as a grave! Oh well, it’ll be filled soon with veges and fruit waste, paper and yard clippings, and then, black dirt to use in the garden! (But it still looks like a grave.)
