How much do you use? And at what dilution?

In the past I've used some at a community garden plot, but I used it
sparingly -- 1:5 dilution at least -- and ended up putting most of it
in the compost.

I've been wondering about using it on some container plants. Maybe
1:10? No more than once a month?

This time of year, most of the produce I'm picking is leafy greens, so
I don't want to use it directly on the garden. Mache, arugula, various
