Best raised bed mixtures or fertilizer?

Benicia, CA

I started raised beds last year and was very happy with the winter crop here in Northern California. I used the mixture of a third peat, compost, and vermiculite. The summer crop was very disappointing and I'm thinking my failure was not adding new nutrients after the previous crop. I'm leaning towards adding chicken manure and rock dust with perhaps worm castings to replenish. Does this sound effective? Any ideas are welcome. Thanks in advance!
