Get some good soil and add some perlite. Perlite isn't really necessary with earthworms, but I like it. Add polymers and earthworms. Buy some black rock phosphorous, greensand, and some form of nitrogen, like manure or fish emulsion. Get a microorganism preparation. I used to use Soil Alive! from Gardens Alive! and Nitrogen Alive! This was like almost fifteen years ago, and I don't know if you can get those. Use the preps at every watering. You will notice the water permeates the soil much easier, adn your soil gets chewed up! Add enough soil to totally fill the pots to offset this effect. You fill notice your soil gets "funky" after a few months. Find the maximum amount of fertilizer you can use w/o burning the plants. Rock Phosphorous is extremely potent and is treated with sulfuric acid to make commercial fetilizers. Last, add a sugar like molasses, during the grow cycle. I also like to add kelp, although it makes everything taste like kelp with heavy applications. When testing for fetilizer maxes, you can flush the soil w/ lots of water if you burn a plant while testing out. Have fun growing organic!
