Reuse of soil in containers

corneygirl | May 2, 2009 09:13 PM

I grow a container garden, and wonder if I can reuse potting soil, either partially or completely for my veg this year. I usually feed with bone meal and fish emulssion every couple weeks. I don't have compost. Could I use half new / half old? What if I boost it up with some coffee grounds or egg shells? Looking to save a few bucks. Hopefully I'll soon figure out a compact way to compost, but until then I would love some feedback. TIA
