I do this too but I saw right off the bat onions!!!!! You will have a max exudous or they will drop to the lowest level and drown in the liquid that gathers there

don't put onion, garlic, citrus or any meat or fish product in there otherwise it'll stink, or the worms will try to flee

oh man really? we eat a lot of onions and there is always waste with them.

we do have a liner in the composter that filters the liquid to the bottom for tea.

Yeah, that's where I found the worms when I used onions

I also use rubbermaid totes to compost with European Night crawlers.. and they climb the walls and exit the holes on top if I put something in there they dont like

well i dont think they will get into the liquid because of the cloth liner above the liquid pan but i will stop putting onions in there i guess. should i remove the onions in there now you think?

also, what type of worms did you use for compost?
