just got myself a really nice shredder/chipper that can handle any organic material even green stuff. I used it on some iris clippings and a bunch of other weeds I ripped up and it was turned into pulp. So now I wonder if its even necessary to go through the trouble of building and maintaining a compost pile when I could just shred it into my garden and till it in. I feel as if more organic material would make it into my garden rather than being lost in the composting process. Also it seems like less work just shredding it in.

Heck, if you have a tiller do you even need to shred it?

Shred it and put it where you want to add organic matter no need to till, the worms will do it for you without damaging the macrobiotic community.
 
It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
