My wife and I have an allotment and on it we have constructed a 4 X 4ft compost heap made from old pallets. It receives tops of veg. such as beetroot, carrots, beans etc etc all chopped into about 2" pieces. It has straw, shredded paper and horse manure and is turned. So far, we have not attracted red worms and there seems to be no heat generating, Consequently the process of rotting down is hardly occuring. What are we doing wrong?
