Re-using the mix

I have started getting ready for april 2012 and recently dumped 5 of my containers. I repacked each one after adding lime and SRF and noticed that the pine bark is some more composted now. If everything else was the same(lol), should the second yr do better, not as good or the same? I learned a little last yr about the fertilizing which will help but I really just wondered about the second yr using the same mix. I will have 7 when I'm finished for eggplants, tomatoes and bell peppers.
