Bit of luck with compost

Well over a year ago I posted something regarding my inability to produce compost after following all the rules, it appears that I hadn't got the temperature right. The compost which I made looked good, and I riddled it to be rid of any twigs, then I proceeded to use it to grow seedlings from seed, well all this stuff popped up which certainly didn't resemble my cabbage or cauliflower, they were weeds from the compost, I had no choice but to bin them and start again with bought-in compost. I have 2 side by side compost heaps, so the one I had taken the compost from was then used as a dumping ground for my empty plastic bags, the other has been used for the normal garden and household waste. They were looking a bit messy, so on Friday I decided to gather up the bags for disposal, to my utter amazement underneath the bags I found beautiful lush compost ( I think the worms helped) I have filled 3 large tubs with the compost, however, I still don't trust myself, so I have put some in a tray and watered it, if nothing sprouts, then I have cracked it, 2 years in the making, I thought this may assist anyone else in my position.
