Went to put some kitchen scraps (banana peels, rotten tomatoes) in my compost "barrel" (actually a plastic garbage can with some holes drilled in it for air flow) and YUCK!!! It was filled with liquid and grubs (maggots???). All I can say is it's breaking down REALLY fast. I guess I've put to many spoiled tomatoes in it. Will throwing some dirt in help? I'm sure it shouldn't be this wet. YUCK. Oh, should mention it has a lid on it, so I know this isn't rain water collecting in the can.
