You nailed it, turning is a major point people miss
Moisture is something to consider as well. Had a real dry summer several years ago and the pile dried out. No compost that year. Should have hosed the pile down or covered it up with a tarp. Live and learn. 🤷‍♂️

New garden update. Just hilled and fertilized my small 12'x70' plot of Silver queen! Hard to tell but most is knee high with a few strugglers. Now if I get tassels and silk I'll be in business! I also opened up another 12'x50' plot for next year's potatoes, onions, garlic, and an egg plant and squash or two for my wife. Two huge piles of wood chips are breaking down nicely for the pre winter application. My self watering pots with tomatoes, peppers and cukes are doing well! I love gardening. It makes the soul happy! Next year will be bigger and better!

Everything was planted outside about 4 1/2 weeks now and doing well! Lots of flowers and hanging baskets too!

Did you hill the corn with a bedder or by hand? Looks great.
