1907 these memorable words laden with deep meaning from President Roosevelt
and Agriculture Secretary Wilson:

See the book Intensive Culture of Vegetables Using the French Method by
Aquatias. I am sure this contributed to the evolution of 20th century
literature on biointensive market gardening. I put together two documents
on garden tools and sources and raised bed gardening (see Emelia Hazelip
about this subject, literature and videos), in need of updating:
Gardening & Hantdtool Sourcelist
Garden and Farm Handtool Sourcelist & Biointensive Gardening Guide

Native American Zinnia Mythology
Zinnia flowers and leaves are used by many southwestern tribes as medicinal
and ritual herbs. The zinnia is considered one of the sacred Life Medicines
of the Navajo tribe. To some Pueblo tribes zinnias are a symbol of wisdom,
and they were fed to young children in hopes of making them grow up
intelligent and well-spoken. More prosaically, zinnias were also used by
southwestern tribes to make bright colors for dyes and paints.
