For the initial beds I used:
 
Composted cow manure
Worm castings
Chicken manure compost (with bedding)
Mushroom compost
Forest products compost
 
Since there is so much stuff out there, would you be so kind as to share the brands you are using? This will help me get an understanding of what to look for. Thanks!
In your  area you should be able to get the Black Kow products,  Black Kow, Black Hen (technically a fertilizer, but I use it as one of my 5 when doing just commercial stuff) and their brand of  mushroom compost.  Also try Blue Ridge Organics in MADISON HEIGHTS, VA  434-847-1233 www.blueridgecompost.com  

I swear by the Black Kow products and just found the Blue Ridge compost this spring at a Southern States in Tappahanock, VA. The forest products is mostly what is in the Lowes and Home Depot composts.

I just discovered Black Kow and Black Hen on Lowe's website. Their mushroom seems to be hard to find, and that's the one that troubles me. I don't know who has a good mushroom compost.

Regarding Blueridge, I saw their "super compost" at my co-op, but the ingredients were vague. Makes me a little apprehensive.

If you cannot easily find mushroom compost forget about it, it really is not a superior component. Check your local craigslist in the farm and garden section.

Also, to reiterate, fertilizer (chickity doo doo, etc) is not compost.
