Soil for raised boxes

I have my boxes built. Now time for soil. Top soil and compost mixture is what has been suggested to me. Anything else that I should add?

As far as your composting question goes, I have a compost tumbler that I use in the summer time. But in the winter I just dig a wide hole in an area of my garden and then throughout the winter, I toss my veggie/fruit scraps in the hole and cover with some of the soil I dug out - I just do that throughout the winter and then in the spring, that area is like black gold! and that's the soil I'll use then to amend into my raised garden boxes.
