I fear I did something dumb…

Today I transplanted all my pepper seedlings into five-gallon containers. I didn't realize until all the seedlings were in the pots that I had misread the label on the bag -- instead of organic potting mix like I thought, it was actually organic PLANTING mix -- i.e., peat, topsoil, and compost. Sh!t. The thing is, I filled each container about one-third full of soil-less potting mix -- stuff I had made several weeks ago for seed-starting. (I had to buy the bagged soil because I didn't have enough of my own mix.) I put that in there first to lighten the load on my deck and help with drainage. Now I'm hoping (maybe against hope) that it'll also help keep the soil from turning into mud bricks in my containers. Do I need to repot? Or should I mix in other drainage components into the soil already in there? Or should I just hope that it works, against my better instincts?
