Doing it this way helps to suppress weed growth. If you are using seeds instead of pre started plants, simply plant the seeds in the top layer of potting soil.

Deep it watered up and you are good to go.

If you are just getting started, you could use 100% potting soil while you are waiting for your compost. It may take a month or two for the compost to be ready. Once you get the composting ball rolling, you can have a continuous supply.
