I don’t have worms in them yet as they are being built up.

Definitely get some worms. Cover the scraps with some' soil. Don't forget to add some dry items in with your wet scrap. Don't put in any meat.

I put the compost items in a 5 gallon bucket and when it liquifies, I pour it on my raised garden bed up to March for planting in April/May. I put a layer of soil from my potted plants on top and then when I reuse it in the pots, the soil is nutritionally restored.

I bury kitchen scraps as deep in my beds as I can.. but I have six beds and I take turns one a week so I give them time as to not overwhelm the bed. I only do maybe a small gallon bucket at a time.

Yes we do and the heat and humidity makes a great seed starting area, just be cautious of rodents and insects, ants became an issue once.

I do. I only have a fence around it and I do it for heat. Attracted a LOT of fruit flies but I keep spraying natural mint spray which keeps them in control. My pile is only 80 degrees but it’s not full.

I put in compost in all my raised beds. Sometimes the stuff isn't composted. I did get 750 worms initially to populate the beds. Now, I think I have thousands.
