A planter for the herb garden

Look at what I picked up last night!

This beautiful used terracotta planter was up for sale for $20 on craigslist. I spotted it yesterday afternoon, and by the evening, it was mine! It's a substantial weight and has drainage holes.

Pickled food waste that comes out of the Bokashi bucket must be mixed with soil in order to complete the composting process, and I don't think this planter will be big enough for the entire contents of my bucket plus soil. I'm still going to get some Rubbermaid tubs to hold the rest, but this will be a good size to start a nice little herb garden. I'm sure my gardener friend would be happy to use whatever excess black gold I end up with in her raised garden beds.
