If you have not already planted, I would add more compost and vermiculite instead and keep any extra to add later. If it is too late to do that, take a ph reading and see. And even then, the compost/vermiculite might still be your better bet.

I didn't add anything to mine, except more compost, when I messed up my first time around. If your boxes are full, you may need to do some math. When removing a portion, add compost and vermiculite to balance everything back out as close as you can and mix it all in well.

I don't remember about lime, but I imagine you would have to add more again at some point. To me, that's the opposite of the concept of SFG. Get it right and never worry about it again.
