Methinks your garden is, uh, hydroponic.

I know someone who actually makes baskets. I watched her from beginning to end one afternoon. She started by applying coppery and bronzy colors to a large sheet of paper. The design looked like an abstract expressionist painting. Then, she cut the paper into long strips, about 1/8" wide. She used the strips to weave the basket, starting with four criscrossed over and under to start the base. The finished basket was quite sturdy, about five inches wide and three inches high, very subtly colored. I kept meaning to put some dried flowers in it, but it seems to have vanished from the shelf where it used to sit.
