My garden has a lot of clay what can I add to help

We have good soil when dry, nice a mobile but when it rains it turns to clay and as the summer went on and between rain and heat it got harder and harder that the carrots were just little stumps and the beets didn't grow very long either so I want to lighten up the soil.

You are going to have to till this with a machine.  Before you do, sprinkle sand, mulch, old leaves, grass clippings, lime, old horsemanure, tree bark broken up some new soil and til.....we also save egg shells and break them up.......you might need more mulch....................we have a soil tester for ph.......................you can tell by feeling the soil after you tilled it twice if you need more mulch, hay.....
