Is there any advantage to putting a "bottom" in an on-ground compost pile? I suddenly find I have the material to do it with if it's worth doing. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
I have never added water to mine. Even so, there is always some liquid in the bin. It must be from the food scraps. There's a GS member named Leilani who is an expert vermicomposter. I don't know if she's in this group, though. I'm in so many groups, I can't keep the members straight. . . The ice chest sounds like the perfect worm bin, especially the kind that has a drainage hole. I don't have room under my sink for anything extra. Leilani suggests a tiered bin where the compost falls through and the worms stay in the upper bin so that you don't have to separate them from the finished product. I haven't seen it but sounds like a good idea.
