Sophisticated designs created using just common vegetables.

Something different - A Vegetable Seesaw
Vegetable art works at many different levels. From pre-school kindergarten, right through to art school. You can just look for inspiration amongst the vegetables in the shop, or else create vegetable art from paper and paint.
Sometimes natural vegetables need a little help from the knife, to create artistic effects.

I like cauliflower, and I love the sheep, wonderful vegetable art.
More Edible Vegetable, Than Artistic Vegetable:
For those of us who struggle to handle a watermelon because of its size and shape, help is at hand. Tesco has developed a new square version which can be sliced like a loaf of bread. The supermarket says many people are put off the refreshing and healthy fruit because it rolls around in the fridge, or it is difficult to slice and eat; so they have adopted growing techniques, which originated in Japan, to offer the square versions.
There is no weird science or genetic modification involved in the process. They are grown in wooden boxes with clear sides which are placed around the growing fruit which naturally swells to fill the surrounding shape. The melons, which feature distinctive dark green and yellow stripes, are being grown in Brazil by one of Tesco's regular suppliers and take 60 days to reach maturity.
Square melons are already available in Japan where they are sold for about 10,000 yen or roughly a sky high £46 [$92USD] appealing only to the better off as show piece food.
These melons are grown to the exact size so that they fit easily onto the shelves of 'fridges in Japan.
