He had a little garden
Vegetables and fruits that he gave to the troops
In a basket his wife made
But in the back of his mind he wanted his family's life saved

from Fort Minor – Kenji Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

They were an ordinary American family, they even had a little garden, and when they had to go, even then they were nice to others, so they gave some plants they had grown to the troops, in a basket

(probably something like this)

that would have taken her days to weeks to have woven.

But even then, he was scared for his family’s life.
