Crockett was the best! We still have at least one of his books.

The peat moss does work, even if acidic. We have clay soil in the Midwest. Our garden was at the foot of a small hill and would always be saturated when it was time to till. So we'd till in 3 large bales of peat moss to help it dry out each year. Sure it was acidic, but limestone is cheap and easy to till in with the peat moss. When we sold the house, after 30 years of this treatment, the garden soil was amazingly friable.
