Not having planted a container garden before, I’m wondering if this type of growth is normal.
Here’s a picture of my container when I first planted everything on 5/20/2012. I planted basil, cayenne peppers, tomato, arugula and strawberries.
Three and a half weeks later, I have a mini jungle. This is what it looked like on 6/14/2012:
I’m working on creating another bokashi container so I can spread things out a bit. My two tomato plants are taking over. I think they need a container all to themselves.
My other containers are doing very well. Everything has germinated and I was pleasantly surprised to see that my dill didn’t bite the dust. It is actually making a comeback.
I was so thrilled with my plants that I created two more bokashi/soil containers. In one I have seasonal flowers and the other I planted herbs.
Maybe I’ll get around to burying bokashi in the soil later on in the summer, but for now I have a few more containers I’d like to fill.
