Default Homemade Fertilizer Supplement

Need advice and thoughts on using this homemade suppliment to my 5 gallon container media (last years batch) for tomatoes, peppers and okra. The mix is as follows:

3/4 pint of egg shell powder (shells washed and sterilized in the oven before pulverizing in the blender)
1 Tablespoon of garden sulphur
1 Tablespoon of Epsom Salts

Will 4 Tablespoons in a 5 gallon container a month or so before planting be sufficient to amend the media? Considering additional ferts like MG Tomato Fertilizer when planting in late April.
