I have yet ANOTHER noob question...
I built a compost bin this weekend out of wooden pallets and filled it almost 3' deep with a mix of shredded paper/cardboard and kitchen scraps and weeds. As I was building the layers, I also wet it with alfalfa/molasses compost tea.
Anyway, I was all excited when I got home tonight to go out and see how hot it was. Well, it's NOT hot at all. Kind of cool all the way through. I am pretty sure there isn't enough "green" material but the question is, when should it start heating up? I thought it'd be fairly quick since I have read that the first turning should be within a day or 2 of piling it due to heat.
