Harold, peat is cheap.  At the garden center of any decent home center
in the US, you can buy a cubic yard or so of the stuff (a lifetime's
worth :-)) for about $10.

You can get the more expensive, undecomposed peat from hobby stores at
a much higher price, but ordinary partially decomposed peat will suffice.
