My plants are doing famously, so well that the eggplant and peppers are falling over. How do stake in 6 inches of Mel's Mix? I have landscape fabric under the box so I can't go deeper.

I have table top beds with plywood bottoms so I understand your situation.  I use small tomato cages in the beds.  I cut the legs shorter so that the bottom circle sets on top of the Mel's Mix.  They are surprisingly stable.  Sometimes I have to tie them together on the top ring if something is really big and heavy.

I have also PVC frames set inside all of the beds that I can attach nylon trellis netting or string to.  I can put the stakes in the MM and tie the top to an overhead string.  I hope you can make out the long strings with stakes tied to them.  You could use rebar and pieces of PVC at each end of the bed for each row and run string across, and attach the stakes to the string.  Drive a 3/8" piece of rebar half way into the ground outside the bed and slip a piece of 1/2" PVC over it.

Thanks you for these ideas! My gardens have curved PVC cages that swing open, but I think I can work with these ideas to make my plants happier.

Glad you can tweak these ideas. There are many ways to support plants, some expensive, some by repurposing and free.
