What can I do to get my raised vegetable garden filled with compost to produce well?


I have a raised veg garden just over i/2 metre in height. It was constructed last Nov & filled with compost from the local landfill compost plant. I planted it & have been very disappointed in the results. Courgette did well, as did basil, tomato OK, chives fine, parsley hardly grew, rhubarn looks real sad, two capsicum plants bore only one small capsicum. Dwarf beans didn't produce & lettuces,brocolli are very stunted. Bed is in the open & has been well watered. Is the garden too fertile? Does it need lime? Or will it come right of its own accord by next spring? I'd love some answers
