All that fruit is fine. Someone above said no citrus, ive never heard of that, curious to see why.

As far as bones/meat/ i think most people dont cause of the smell. When i process my meat chickens i bury the carcasses under about 3 ft of compost. Although i do not put bones/meat from my table scraps. The carcasses are usually fully decomposed in less than a year and Ive never had an issue with rodents or other animals..... as far as i can tell.

Edit: Has anybody else in this thread tried composting with worms? I did a few years ago and it was amazing.
If you have "working" compost then i would think you will have worms. I have never added worms and my compost is chock full.

Yes, smell is the other big factor.

Also, watch for fats and oils, too. And, no dog or cat feces.

Arthurpete, I specifically meant vermiculture for worm castings. Works very quickly and you can use many of the same items you throw into the compost bin.

Guess I really haven't been as diligent as I should be ... I'll try harder
