Hi Alan, I started my 4th off last week. Standing on soil, thankfully I put some bricks around the edges to give stability until it gets more stuff in as it's in a windy place.
I forked the soil base and put some half rotted compost from another dalek in the bottom ( worms included ) added kitchen green waste and plants leaves and soft cuttings & cardboard in layers, then added some activator. Sometimes I get the stuff that neighbour has cleaned out from their G pigs, but non on offer so used activator. I'll keep doing this along with some grass cuttings, but not too many of those.
Artjak is our master composter so I'm sure she'll add to what I've said
