Keep adding boxes. My one rosemary plant would overflow one of those.

I like those corner blocks. I've never seen them. What country are you in?

Peppermint roots will take over an entire bed and find ways to get into the next.  So I advise planting it a separate container that is designed to be escape proof.
What has worked well for me is the top cut off of a plastic barrel on cement blocks. The mint likes lots of water so I keep it partialy flooded but remove one of the caps during the rainy season so it is not completely flooded.
 
Be reasonable. You can't destroy everything. Where would you sit? How would you read a tiny ad?
