What fertilizers are safe for container gardening - herbs and leafy veggies?

I have some superthrive, is that safe for an edible gardening?

1. Anything organic from Home Depot

I've grown herbs and vegetables in Earthboxes for years. I grab whatever is on the shelf at Home Depot. These days, just about anything is organic. I generally get something tomato-specific for tomatoes. It's higher in calcium, I believe, which minimizes blossom end rot.

4. I might try tomatoes next year.

Not sure if it's a safe around here since I also have a butterfly garden. Not that the food specific caterpillars will get ideas, but the bugs that are also around this garden might get ideas.

But, I like the site.
