    marigolds repel some pests, lemon or citrus type scented flowers do repel some pests. Hair of dog, or human hair as well works.

    You can search on line for potting mix recipes. Top soil is heavy for the plants roots. You need good aeration and good drainage, and sunshine. Which ever potting mix you choose, you may need to supliment with compost or fertilizer.

    Here is an idea for you.... the trash can can handle a large tomato or a cucumber run on a trellis ... the smaller containers.. like a wash tub could handle onions, lettuce, carrots, herbs... use the plant dollies to move things around and clean under them....
