Hi Elisabeth

Thanks for the photos.
It appears from the photos that your composter is extremely compact and that there is not a lot of air flow within the composter. Are there air holes on one or other side of the composter?

Answer by EvM:
Yes, there are holes in the sides. They are maybe 3 mm in diameter, difficult to see in the photos. Apparently that should be enough for aeration? But the compaction is a problem
