    • Definitely a bright red pepper!

  • Asparagus. Tall, elegant, and bathed in hollandaise sauce.

  • A potato

  • I would be a sweet potato !

  • Parsnip- my current fave veggie to roast

  • A just picked garden tomato

  • A tomato, because people’s initial impression of me is often inaccurate. And a tomato is really a fruit, not a vegetable.

  • Purple dalkon radish

  • Cherry tomato. On the fringe- veggie or fruit? Or both?

  • Potato

  • Tomato! Yes, I know it’s “technically “ a fruit. But panzanella is not a fruit salad.

  • Zucchini!

  • Pak Choi

    Yummmmm

  • Bok Choy – nice name, love it in stir fry!

  • An Edward Weston Pepper!

  • First thing that popped into my head was PUMPKIN! Not one of those ethereal white ones, or a grizzly knobby one. Just a plump one that makes people smile when they see it.

  • I’d be a butternut squash!

  • A beet – handle me with gloves.

  • I would be a tomato. A bit of a tough skin, but soft inside.

  • My layers of life and feelings must mean I am a Brussels Sprout…..with a little lemon on the side

  • A beet. Round and red.

  • Spinach. It’s my favorite

  • Eggplant (for the colors, not the shape)

  • I would sketch myself as a big bowl of salad to represent my varied personality quirks and I adore salads

  • A kiwi – it is a very interesting fruit – a lot different on the inside than on the outside.

  • If I were a vegetable I’d be an eggplant: undulating curves, voluptuous royal deep purple.

  • A Tomato! I have eaten so many my blood type is marinara.

  • I would be a carrot! Love your artwork. Very inspiring.

  • An eggplant. One those lovely short varieties because the shape and height fit and adore the color purple. Maybe an Italian or French variety, so I can call it an aubergine. I love the word.

  • Carrot! As a baby my nose turned orange from too many – wonder if I can still do that?

  • I would be a patty pan squash.

    • I would be a chanterelle mushroom. Although mushrooms are classified as vegetables, (technically) they are so much more! What fun to be a plant that is part of the kingdom called fungi! I relate to chanterelles because they are popular, they are wild and they are generally delicious. Many are orange, yellow or white (great color way) Chanterelles are meaty- I can relate! and funnel-shaped. Underneath the smooth cap, most species have rounded, folds- yup. Got those too!

  • A turnip, just your basic root vegetable, but when roasted, is very sweet!

  • Sugar snap peas – my current fave!

  • A carrot—low maintenance and almost sweet

  • I would be a carrot, even though I don’t have red hair!

  • An entire stalk of Brussels sprouts. So many simultaneous projects …

  • I would be a carrot- I’m deep, colorful, crunchy, earthy. I can be hard but I can be soft too – just depends on the circumstances.

  • Broccoli—bright green and textured when sketched and in watercolor wash.

  • Watermelon radish, great colors

  • A beet. It is what it is!

  • I love eggplants! Showy on the outside and absorb the flavor of my surrounding.

  • I would be a radish, small and cute but when you bite into it there is quite a “bite”.

  • A tomato. Always confused. Can’t decide if it is a fruit or a vegetable.

  • You have GOT to make some tote bags, or mugs, or posters, or SOMETHING out of those drawings, they are awesome!!
    And I’d be a garlic clove, packed in a bulb with family and friends, but also useful by myself….

  • artichoke

  • A red beet…..nice deep colour.

  • I believe I would be a carrot. Bright, sassy orange with the greens left on top, which is sort of what my hair looks like in the morning.
    Kathy

  • An eggplant. Curiously I am allergic to it.

  • I would like to be an asparagus — tall and thin.

  • a fingerling potato

  • Lettuce 🙂

  • An artichoke of course!

  • Right now…asparagus ~ tall and thin.

  • An English pea! I would have grown intertwining on a lovely trellis with little sweet blooms and then snuggled into my pod with family. Then at last we would all pop out and roll around playing together. I guess finally to rest with some mushrooms in a fragrant pot of risotto!

  • I think artichoke-

  • Peas! They’re my favourite, tall, and like the cold 🙂

  • Is there a blue vegetable? No??? Then jalapeño that’s just starting to get a little red.

  • I would be a plump purple eggplant!

  • Hmmm, I think I would be a quiet, unassuming, but delicious carrot.

  • Hmmm…asparagus?

  • I am thinking I might be a cabbage. Versatile, lots of layers, and longevity under proper storage conditions!

  • I would be a sweet potato! Love the color, sweetness & comfort!

  • Asparagus. Not everybody’s cup of tea but people who love me, love me a lot.

  • Edamame. Delicious and a fun word to say!

  • A tomato! I grow about 8 different varieties and eat them in almost everything.

  • Artichoke, lots of layers, a tricky section to get to the heart.

  • A carrot…long, lean, sweet and colorful. A girl can only wish!

  • Garlic. There are….reasons

  • A potato, maybe mashed with a pat of butter.

  • Tomato, yes a fruit, but so beloved that everyone waits for those perfect specimens of summer.

  • A ginseng. Constantly sought out and dug up.

  • I would sketch myself an asparagus—gracefully tall and slim and I’d match our new leather sofa that was custom dyed the color of asparagus!

  • I think I would be a purple onion

  • So many great answers here – I’ll take green pepper, or yellow or orange!

  • Edamame- so worth getting past the outer shell!

  • The beet, the beat of my heart, the red blood it bleeds when I cut it. The beet, the beet, the beet, I feel the beet, I draw the beet.

  • A tomato because there is nothing better than one fresh out of the garden!

  • Tomato…bright and tangy!

  • I love the unpredictability of garlic scapes.

  • An asparagus. So versatile!

  • An artichoke. A little prickly, a bit high maintenance, but so worth it, lol.

  • Beautiful sketches, they make me wish I could draw. I would choose a fairy tale eggplant – the colors make me so happy, wish I could dress like that all the time!

  • A radish!

  • Shallot. Not as many layered as an onion, and not as sharp. They also like to grow as a group.

  • An eggplant

  • A potato! A potato goes with anything, can be dressed up or down, and be a homebody or out on the town!

  • Potato

  • A roasted turnip for sure.

  • A pole bean … I can hear my mother’s voice, “You’re growing like a pole bean.”

  • A tomato. It’s my favorite (I eat them like apples)
    & I’m shaped like them 😀

  • Likely a carrot. I’m kind of all legs and the length of the carrot makes sense.

  • Green leafy lettuce

  • Artichoke

  • A potato.

  • I guess I would be a green onion because they’re easy to grow and go with so many dishes, but I’d rather be a flower.

  • A red beer.

  • broccoli

  • Tomato

  • Turnip — first sketch in the book would be Miss Turnip Head with her graduated purple face and large leafy hair!

  • A corn stalk (if that counts, corn cob included). Reaching for the sky and happy with the feathered friends who pay visit.

  • Artichoke, ruffles and kinda spiky!

  • I’d be a tomatillo. One plant with hundreds of lovely little orbs dressed in lovely lacy sweaters.

    • Love this

  • Yellow squash

  • Sweet potatoe! Thanks for sharing Hannah’s sketches!

  • Asparagus. I don’t know why. It was the first thing that popped into my head.

  • A leek – because I “leek” my emotions everywhere!

  • Fennel for its fancy fronds – a fantasy because I have so straight hair!

  • A carrot with the greens still attached. Definitely.

  • I would be broccoli.

  • A potato because I’ve been feeling like a couch potato lately.

  • I’d be an artichoke, for sure!

  • Carrot, growing up I was called carrot top, which I did not like. But when my best friend started using the endearment, I loved it.

  • I would be a leek…because I have a wee bit of Welsh heritage and because a leek would be easy to draw.

  • I’d be a juicy peach!!

  • A carrot.

  • I would be a carrot. I love carrots.

  • Broccoli

  • I’m totally an onion. Lots of layers here!

  • Team beet!!!

  • Potato

  • Eggplant. Stands out in a crowd.

  • A red pepper.

  • Cabbage

  • Perpetual Beet Spinach – resilient!!

  • Fresh ginger!!!!

  • I love this peep into your sketch book! And the onion sketch is fantastic…but entirely next-level with caption of Self Portrait. I have no idea what vegetable to suggest for myself. Maybe an artichoke…always wanting to let it keep flourishing and doing its thing because the next stage might get better and better. (Somewhere, someone is saying “are you Enneagram 7?”) Or purple sprouting broccoli. It’s tall, lanky, late today the party, you question if it’s doing anything, and then it’s suddenly showing out. And you can eat the stalks, the leaves, the broccoli. Or you can let it bloom and feed the bees. This is no long er anything to do with me…just a note that you should grow Purple Sprouting Broccoli.

  • The carrot!

  • Celery: Cool, lean, crowned and adorned

  • Maybe I’m a mushroom because I love the forest.

  • Celery… not well represented here, it was feeling left out but has so much to offer. Goes well with many things and a standout alone. Sweeter when you get closer to the heart.

  • Golden Beet- those beautiful colors and greens!

  • I can see myself as a tomato

  • I think a tomato- get me at the wrong time and I’m tart and bitter, but if you get the timing right, I can be quite sweet…

  • Butternut squash- kind of my shape. Perhaps too much time sitting knitting!

  • One of the two seasonal vegetables I make my family eat till they’re gone, sweet corn – preferably fresh on the cob in late august. (The other is asparagus).

  • I’d be a hybrid…a cross between broccoli for my hair and eggplant for my shape.

  • A pepper – sometimes green, sometimes yellow or red or orange. And sometime spicy, depending on what else is happening!

  • Artichoke, can be prickly but really nice on the inside.

  • Kale. Surprisingly good in lots of different situations, and keeps coming back no matter how hard you try to get rid of it.

  • Potato. Why? I don’t know, I just like them cooked any which way you can!

  • I think a cabage head. I once painted myself with a bunch of ripe tomatoes, but that was when I was young. Once upon a time…..

  • Snap or snow pea for me.

  • I would be some spinach because I would throw myself into an omelet. That way I could be surrounded by eggs and cheese!

  • I’m an onion. Lots of layers and I add flavor to the mix.

  • Definitely a potato!

  • A perfect apple with shades of rosy red, and a tiny, smiling green worm peeping out….

  • I would be a tomato. Best in the summer.

  • A radish

  • An onion. Lots of layers!!

  • I’m feeling like an eggplant today …

  • Asparagus

  • Such a great question. A tsai. You think it’s lettuce but it’s not. It’s a little Asian but also familiar. Not too exciting just vaguely ethnic.

  • First, the sketches are amazing! I love the notions bag—get that to spoon flower and you have a new product.

    Vegetable?? Maybe an artichoke. Thick skin, soft heart, can be prickly at times!

  • A little Thai eggplant. Small and flamboyant, bursting with flavor!

  • Home grown tomato

  • A mushroom. Technically a fungus so not sure I count as a vegetable. I range from simple to exotic, earthy to poisonous.

  • Onions! I can’t imagine cooking/food without onions.

  • How about one of those endearingly ugly misshapen organic carrots? Loads of personality; generator of curiosity and imagination, with all the good taste and crunch you could ask for.

  • Cilantro, of course! It may not be a vegetable and it is definitely an acquired taste. Love it or hate it, it is unforgettable. Just like me!!!

  • If I were to sketch myself as a vegetable it would be a brussel sprout with a big smile on it!

  • A potato…
    A potato with arms…
    A potato with arms on the couch….with knitting needles!

  • An acorn squash…round and full of squishy stuff

  • I’d say artichoke but will go with frisée, just because no one else said it,

  • Spaghetti squash because how I appear on the outside vs what’s useful about me on the inside would be a surprise!

  • Here we are ,is it A fruit or vegetable?
    I must be an avocado.

  • Lotus root for me. Beautiful blossoms above the water and the root is tasty as a side or a sweet

  • Garlic. Pretty much goes with everything.

  • Aubergine… love the colour!

  • Carrot, corn, asparagus, pepper, turnip or rutabega. Potato!

  • A green onion!

  • A yellow bell pepper. My favorite thing to add to a salad!

  • If I were a vegetable, I would be a carrot. I love to make (and eat) carrot cake and I have pet rabbits who can eat carrot tops!!!

  • arugula

  • I would be a beet, because I love the color

  • My vegetable art would be of a long English cucumber. I’ve always wished I was taller

  • Tomato! Great in any situation/recipe!

  • Crookneck squash!

    • I would be a golden beet. Beautiful color and wonderful sweetness

  • It’s difficult to give personality to vegetables. I would sketch my portrait as an okra. Sticky and striving for self improvement. The inner mandella arrangement of seed spheres and radial sections add intrigue.

  • After looking at my hair in the mirror this morning,I would have to be a carrot.

  • My self portrait would be a beet! Love red.

  • I’d be corn. Corn infected with huitlacoche that is. Incredibly delicious!

    Love the sketches!

  • Cabbage-red or green. Served hot or crispy cold. And complimentary colors.

  • A Morel

  • I would definitely have to say garlic. I add spice to most situations but can turn sharp enough to clear a room if angered.

  • Butternut squash!

  • Artichoke, I’m a little prickly

  • I’d bean aubergine!

  • Eggplant

  • sweet potato

  • An artichoke because of its many layers and I love that my plant produces year after year.

  • I would be fennel. Fennel living in Italy. I have only recently discovered it.

  • Tomato. Because whether I am a vegetable or a fruit, I am delicious, versatile, and occasionally controversial.

  • A rutabaga- mostly cuz I think the word is funny.

  • Ooh la la, love this week’s prize! I would be a cauliflower, because I eat so much of it.

  • A sweet red pepper

  • A carrot-colorful, strong and sweet.

  • A lumpy sweet potato/yam

  • String bean.

  • Broccoli…

  • I would be a bulb of garlic, piquant and mysterious.

  • Tomato! I try to brighten up your life!

  • I would be asparagus. I love how it emerges from the ground in spring and is so delicious

  • Definitely a sweet potato!

  • I would be curly kale because I am going through chemotherapy right now for breast CA and I MISS MY HAIR!!!

  • I’d definitely sketch an asparagus spear. It’d be tall, slender and a mass of curly hair – none of which I am!

  • Spaghetti squash. My years have toughened my exterior, but I vow to remain soft on the inside.

  • A radish. Small, bite sized, peppery, colorful. Easy to grow and surprisingly mild and smoothly textured when heated up!

  • I would be a sweet pea!

  • I would be a radish–firm, reliable, sweet looking, and spicy!

  • Most definitely a (couch) potato. One of those lumpy, misshapen ones.

  • Green cabbage! Sweet and crunchy when raw and so many savory ways to be transformed!

  • Escarole

  • I like the word “rutabaga” but I think I am more of a carrot.

  • Celery

  • I’m not a fan of vegetables. The first one to come to mind was cucumber because I could use it as is or a pickle.

  • I would be a sweet potato…. Earthly and plain on the outside, but bright, beautiful, sweet and tasty on the inside.

  • I would be an artichoke. Prickly on the outside, multilayered with a soft center.

  • A tomato . I’d be a tomato. It can be cool and refreshing, warm and spicy, saucy and sassy.

  • An eggplant. Just a regular one. I aspire to be a Japanese eggplant. Trimmer shaped.

  • I think one of those pretty purple & white eggplants. I don’t even like eggplants, but I think that would be pretty!

  • I would most definitely be asparagus

  • I’d sketch myself as an artichoke….they are hard to get to know but once you do, we are delicious!

  • Eggplant. That is my body shape.

  • I would be a rhubarb stalk. You either hate them or love them and it’s usually an acquired taste. Like me!

  • If I were to sketch myself as a vegetable, it would have to be as an avocado. I know many call an avocado a fruit, but I view it as a vegetable because it is not sweet as all fruits are. And I am shaped like an avocado! It’s my favorite!!

  • I can’t think of a specific vegetable. But, I think it would be one that is tough and difficult to eradicate.

  • Onion. Lots of layers and useful.

  • Radicchio. Slightly bitter but delicious when handled correctly.

  • I would be a turnip … chubby and inscrutable.

  • corn on the cob. love

  • Lemon, bright perky g
    Kind of zesty

  • I’d bean asparagus. The flowy feathery green at the top, the straight and true green deliciousness at the base. YUM.

  • Candy stripe beet- slightly sweet, slightly bitter, round and a little wacky, just like me 😉

  • Happy Easter morning! In my vegetable self portrait, I would be curly leaf parsley. A big curly top on a skinny stalk!

  • I’d be a carrot because I always wanted to have red hair.

  • I’m going to go with fennel!

  • I would be an eggplant, the kind with the rounded bottom. And I’d be that stunning aubergine color

  • Frankly, I don’t love any vegetable; I just manage to eat some cuz they’re good for me. Since many have chosen tomato and that’s really a fruit, I’m going to say grapefruit–tart and tangy!

  • I would be asparagus—seasonal, therefore special, tall and slender, delicious anytime, and beautifully green.

  • A sweet potatoe, knobby and rough on the outside but sweet in the center!

  • A potato. You can dress me up or down and take me anywhere.

  • Celery- tall and proud with a cute hair-do on top

  • If I were to portray myself as a vegetable, I would aspire to be a carrot! Bright color, crunchy and sweet, good for the eyes.

  • I’d love to be a field of lacinato kale!

  • A zucchini, they just keep growing and growing….

  • Eggplant. Dark, moody, heavier on the bottom.

  • Eggplant, for sure! A glossy, round, classic shape in a voluptuous aubergine.

  • Artichoke. Sometimes I feel prickly.

  • Parsley. Is that a vegetable?

  • An onion – I have many layers and never seem to get to the core, I can add interest, but can also give you heartburn…;)

  • An eggplant. Yup, same shape and often dressed in shades of purple.

  • If I were to sketch myself as a vegetable from my garden, I think I’d be a parsnip. Sturdy, pale, sensitive, and takes a long time to grow.

  • An Artichoke—it was the first vegetable that came to mind! I can be a mystery to some, but if you are willing to go for the good stuff and peel the leaves away, you may be surprised. And best of all–drench me in garlic butter and I will be your friend for life!

  • spinach is my favorite veg, but i’m not sure how much we look alike.
    i’ll make it mixed sauted greens to pull off a self portrait.

  • A cauliflower … Used to be ordinary, but now reinventing herself and learning new skills.

  • A celeriac root, maybe?

  • Delicata squash

  • Artichoke -I have layers but I’m open to those who love me.

  • A carrot. There is such a variety and i5 is on of the few things I can easily grow in my garden.

  • I’d say I’m a carrot – dependable, easy to grow, likeable, good for improving your (in) sight.

  • Brussels sprout.

  • Carrot. I’m deeper and sweeter than people realize, and have an attractive topside.

  • I think I would be an asparagus because I was tall and super skinny as a teenager. Still tall, not quite as skinny now!

  • A tomato. Have you seen my hair?

    So I know a tomato is technically a fruit, not really a vegetable. I am technically some-other-color hair, not really a redhead. But it’s been 40 years since I became a not-really-a-redhead so we’ll go with that.

  • A big ripe red luscious tomato!!

  • Cabbage, because it ages well!

  • A tomato because it’s technically a fruit but used as a vegetable and tastes like a vegetable. I’m often misunderstood; like I’m not what I appear to be? Also, tomatoes are what holds so many dishes together, especially tomato sauce!!

  • I would be asparagus! Tall and slender

  • Either an onion (“Cooking without onions is like dancing with one leg; you don’t do it unless you have to”) or a cucumber, fresh or pickled!

  • Artichoke for sure. I don’t know why, but it just is.

  • Hmmmm . . . . I’m going to have to say purple cabbage. Very versatile and colorful.

  • Rhubarb. It’s a vegetable commonly used as a fruit — so a little mysterious.

  • A string bean, tall and skinny!

  • A pomegranate….with many seeds to sow

  • A sprouting bean, greeting the sky.

  • Basil. An herb, I know… but what’s not to love?

  • Beet!

  • Hmm a vegetable. Well onions have many layers so that could be an option but perhaps a Diakon radish. Slightly spice a bit mysterious and somewhat lumpy

  • Chioggia beet

  • I’d love to be a fairy tale eggplant! Such a beautiful purple color

  • a beet, love em and I blush easily

  • A lemon

  • Tomato

  • Aubergine. AKA Eggplant. Something about the color.

  • If I were a vegetable?…a tomato! Only because they symbolize summer, my favorite time of year! And the are vital to many of my favorite meals; spaghetti, pizza, BLT, chili, and the list goes on!

  • Me? I’d be a big fat sun-ripened tomato growing in my own backyard.

  • A sweet potato. It’s a versatile vegetable that can be cooked in so many different ways.

  • Asparagus- tall and thin… except I’m not…

  • Wow! What an intriguing question. Probably a potato. I’m Irish!

  • I, definitely, would be asparagus. Asparagus is seasonal and therefore special, like me. It is tall and slender, like me. And it is utterly delicious, like me???

  • Basil: savory, bright, deep. fresh & really good company

  • Swiss chard, to honor my ancestral family

  • Celery. I am kind of lanky and my hair is a little wild like the scraggly leaves at the top of a stalk.

  • I would be a beet. Sweet sometimes, sour other times.

  • Definitely broccoli, it’s beautiful and delicious!

  • Arugula….. spicy, peppery & healthy!

  • Fruits are so much easier to come up with than vegetables. But I think if I were to sketch myself as a vegetable it would have to be a head of red leaf lettuce. Lots of layers and colors.

  • Hi Hannah, Your sketches are very cool. I would never have thought to sketch a ketchup packet! LOL

    I would probably sketch myself as an asparagus spear or a tomato. Both of these I grow in my garden.Nothing better than a tomato fresh from the garden!!! Plus I have auburn hair. So I’d be a tomato with wavy hair and glasses.

    I’m certainly not slender so I’d be a nice thumb which asparagus spear. The top would be my hair pinned up with a clip and curling up over the top of my head as I wear it sometimes.

    This was a fun thing to think about!!!

  • A BEET–that wonderful color and concentric rings!!

  • Hmmm. A parsnip. Yep, definitely a parsnip

  • Peapod

  • I’d have to say Eggplant… mostly because when I had my wisdom teeth removed close to if not more than 40 years ago, my mother lovingly called me eggplant face because of the swelling and bruising. And… I’ve never let her live it down – even now that she’s 85!

  • Me as a vegetable…? Cucumber!
    Clean, refreshing, crunchy!

  • I would be Little Gem lettuce because…I’m little too!

  • Goldie looks a darling. I would be a peanut plant! They aren’t common in the gardens of southwestern Ontario where there was snow on the ground this morning, but it is possible to grow them here. And I want to try!

  • Broccoli!

  • If I were to be sketched as a vegetable, I’d chose Brussels sprouts because the love them. But I’d want it to be the little purple ones, they’re the best!

  • I would be a potato. When was in college, the neighbor across the street from my parents was shaped not unlike a potato. With toothpick-size legs. In private we (our family) referred to her as The Potato Lady. I’m potato-shaped, too — somewhat irregular — but my legs are more in propotion to my potato-ness (but relatively shapely).

  • Asparagus. Crisp, lean, green and mean/

  • An artichoke… the answer is always an artichoke.

  • I would be an apple….
    “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”

  • I would be a beet. My favorite color❤️

  • A shallot. Lots of layers, but not so pungent as an onion.

  • An upside-down leek.

  • Asparagus dressed up as potato.

  • Eggplant.

  • I’m a scallion, good with everything.

  • Lately I’ve been having a bit of trouble with recall so I’d draw a head of red cabbage sliced in two. Easy to look in to figure out what’s going on in there! 😉

  • Something to look forward to every summer, fresh corn on the cob! We eat it all summer and also take it off the cob to freeze for winter.

  • Onion. Sometimes sweet, sometimes complex, sometimes too strong. Make some cry, others love the taste.

  • I am definitely an artichoke.

  • Sweet red pepper

  • Asparagus because I am tall and I was
    thin when I was younger

  • I would be a potato of unusual conformation.

  • The first thing that came to mind was broccoli… Must be the curly hair 🙂

  • If I were (able) to sketch myself as a vegetable, it would be a radish.

  • Cucumber! Tall, slender, (manifesting – lol) cooling, a bit crispy -and with beautiful yellow blossoms.

  • I guess I would go with brussel spouts… a little bit odd, but very good with the right treatment and additions.

  • Definitely a Brandywine tomato. Name me something better to eat right out of the garden on a hot summer day, I dares you.

    • Sungold cherry tomatoes! Gardener’s treat – like candy when perfectly ripe. But I love brandywine tomatoes, too. Best kind for a great BLT!

  • My kids tell me either a carrot, spinach, or garlic, but I’ve been feeling very round lately, more like a gourd.

  • Definitely Rhubarb. Colorful, frilly leaves, a little sour but add a little sugar and it’s delicious.

  • Spinach!

  • Eggplant…round in the middle and always purple with rage.

  • Most definitely I would like to be …. a leek. So many ways to feed the world!

  • Spinach – I’m strong, “Cause I eats me spinach.”

  • An artichoke with a really big heart!

  • Kale. Less popular, but very good for you.

  • Kale. Because it’s good for you.

  • An eggplant because I LOVE the colour, but I would use the French term of Aubergine because it sounds exotic!

  • Hmm… Me as a vegetable? Corn on the cob, with a fetching head of corn-silk hair.

  • Well if I have to be accurate, I would have to sketch myself as a bell pepper, a bit short and rather round in the middle. But maybe I can use my imagination and sketch some celery, pretending to have long legs and fun frilly hair!

  • I think it would be a squash. Yellow or green, maybe crookneck. Mostly because the older I get, the bigger I get…..

  • A sweet potato, who doesn’t love a sweet potato pie, sweet potato fries, and my sweet potato casserole, yum!

  • My vegetable would be a carrot – I like to think I have long sturdy roots, and some fluffy greenery. ; )

  • I’d be an onion – lots of layers!

  • I would be a broccoli.

  • I see myself as broccoli because I have curly hair. (or cauliflower!)

  • Curly Kale for the versatility and color

  • Arugula – tender and spicy! And I think it could be the name of a dance 🙂

  • A spicy pepper

  • Romanesco….or as a friend calls it “fractal broccoli”. It’s unique, has that awesome fractal pattern and it’s a veg people will try-and like-even though they don’t like broccoli.

  • I’m a lonely little petunia in an onion patch!

  • As a vegetable I would be an artichoke. Lovely green colour, prickly on the outside, but so worth peeling away the layers to discover the special heart hidden within.

  • Turnip

  • eggplant

  • A lovely red pepper.

  • Onion…the base for every Jewish dish

  • I’m thinking Aubergine; the colors, the curves.

  • Definitely a red beet!

  • A mushroom.

    Having a rough time at work.

  • I’d be rhubarb. A vegetable best enjoyed as a fruit, but also with poisonous parts! (Not really )

  • aubergine

  • Well, I’m tall, so it would have to be a good-sized leek.

  • An Onion, many layers.

  • Me as a vegetable? I want to be asparagus — tall and thin! It’s the way I will ever be that way!

  • Artichoke, because of my curly hair.

  • Honestly, a potato. Round, brown, and eminently adaptable.

  • Celery with the leaves at the top for lovely “hair” lol

  • Rhubarb – it’s both sweet and sour – like me lol

  • Fennel. Layers like an onion, but (hopefully) less sharp.

  • This was surprisingly difficult for me. 🙂 I would be a rutabaga, because it is a great name and they last the winter. We called them turnips, I found out the difference only recently.

  • Broccoli!

  • A snow pea. Crisp and snappy.

  • Cabbage: layered, cold-hardy, kinda sweet, kinda bitter.

  • Garlic

  • a potato – for its versatility

  • I’m broccoli. You should see my hair when I wake up in the morning!

  • parsnip- nothing special on the outside, lots of nooks for garden dirt, a bit peppery on the inside. Love to be in the stew!

  • I think it would be… Celery!

    • An onion…woman of many layers for sure!

  • Winter squash like a butternut or what a friend once gave me, a cow pumpkin, which was grown to feed cows in the winter. Lucky cows because the large tan pumpkins are just wonderful. Butternuts and other winter squashes might not look sexy but they are easy keepers and are great in sweet or savory recipes. Love the solid, easy to grow, beautiful rich orange color and they make great pumpkin pie or sweet baked goodies as well as wonderful soups and savory side dishes. I am solid, sweet and savory but not sure about being orange inside!

  • Hatch green chile. It goes with everything.

  • Zucchini for sure. I’d do something with the blossoms for hair!

  • I think I’m already a scallion

  • Celery, crisp and delicious with a full, leafy top.
    Thanks so much for the wonderful sketches!

  • Plum tomato

  • A sweet potato. For sure.

  • Definitely. A Purple pepper

  • Probably a Romanesco. It doesn’t necessarily resemble me, but it’s odd, it’s quirky, and it looks like it’s made of little fir trees, so who can resist that?

  • Sweet potato! My dad always called me that. I miss him.

  • I am already half eggplant as I eat so much of it. So, eggplant, wonderfully round…

  • Butternut squash. It seems the most human vegetable.

  • A zucchini for sure!

  • I think I’d be baby bok choy . Small, crunchy and delicious.

  • Celeriac! Feeds a crowd, gnarly, complicated roots

  • For some reason onion popped into my brain immediately. My grandmother used to sing about a lonely petunia in an onion patch. No idea why I’m making that connection but see it reversed. Lonely onion in petunia patch.

  • Spaghetti squash…..2 of them. Cooked. One with the innards of the other hanging from the top 😉

  • rhubarb, for sure. i seem like one thing but i’m really another. i have red hair and a v. green spirit! also, i’m rather tart on my own, but mix me with some sugar and i sweeten right up!

  • An onion because all good things begin with an onion. (I’ve forgotten the Yiddish for this adage.)

  • Parsnip

  • Kale: a little bitter, well intentioned, steady

  • I asked my sleeping husband the question and he said, “I don’t know, something vibrant. Maybe a tomato because it’s full of surprises.” I asked him what surprises and he said, “Well for one, it’s a fruit.” He won’t remember this conversation in the morning.

  • Arugula!

  • I would be a root vegetable-probably a carrot!

  • A carrot, mostly because I love orange!

  • A french green bean.

  • Radish: leafy glorious top, with spicy crunchy bit growing underground…and the color is so rich! Also delicious with a salty butter. (I’m not sure if this is the veg I am, or the veg I want to be)

  • Definitely butternut squash.

  • Tomato, I know it is a fruit. Cherokee purple and Isis cherry tomato, my favorites.

  • Carrot !

  • eggplant

  • I would be a mushroom cap. A mushroom cap that knits.

  • I would be an onion squash (and I know it’s a fruit, but it’s in the veg aisle in the supermarket so I say it counts:))

  • I’m an eggplant — beautiful color and sexy curves!

  • Cauliflower!

  • A cucumber. These comments are wonderful!

  • If I were a vegetable it would be KALE!! Frilly around the edges, but full of important stuff.

  • An eggplant! (I love purple in all its variations, and I’m kinda that shape lol)

  • mmmm. well, I think I’m more of a fruitish being. I image myself to be a pink, luscious grapefruit, round, sumptuous, sunny. On the inside all moist with little pods of goodness that pop open in delight with a little tang mixed in with that wonderful sweet citrus of the grapefruit. Thanks. this was fun thing to do. jeanne

  • Artichoke, because they are funny

  • Asparagus!

  • A golden potato. Lot’s of creative ways to use them. Delicious au gratin! Who says that you can’t have as many craft choices either? Knitting, crochet, pottery, glass, fiber …….

  • An ear of corn! I would have silky blond hair, husky arms and I’d substitute garter stitch for corn kernels.

  • I’d be a beet. baby!!

  • A spring mix of lettuces and greens. Lots of different things to do, see and enjoy!

  • Probably something in the gourd/squash family, maybe a butternut.

  • I am thinking brussel sprout. Not too flashy, hearty, a veggie that you can count on to round out a meal and fill you up

  • Me as a veggie would be a sweet potato! Because I can be sweet or salty!

  • Red cabbage. A bit spicy. Crunchy, lots of layers. One of my favorite vegetables to grow. The outer leaves are amazing. I feel that way when I wear something I have created.

  • Probably a potato. I may look like a russet but prefer the purple kind!

  • An lovely red radish with the green leaves still on.

  • An eggplant

  • As a vegetable, I’d probably be some sort of Siberian kale.

  • It would have to be a shishito pepper: wonderfully delicious and sometimes spicy!

  • I would be a fresh summer tomato!

  • Escarole… nod to my Italian heritage and my grandmother’s soup recipe that gets made without fail at every family holiday!

  • A tomato as I wake up bursting to start each day

  • Hahaha. Sweet potato! A little lumpy here and there and not always pretty on the outside, but inside all warm and sweet.
