No patterns, just looking at things online & trying to figure out the how-to.

The asparagus tips are a sloppy sort of picot stitch (3 single crochet, the last slip stitched into the first to make a knobbly little bump).

The mushrooms looked like peanuts, lol, the gills are stitched in such a way to compress & shape the cap.

I tried a few different veggie tops.

And leaves.

Super neat! I like all the different leaf tops you did - the beet looks especially good with the color contrast.

Thanks guys! I'm still crocheting every day to try and perfect guessing shapes as they are formed. Next up is a long boring project, a picnic basket to hold all this stuff.

I finished some cherries today. I'm not sure if I'll make more fruit, she's got felt stuff I made for her bro when he was little.

You could sew her a little gathering apron so she can go pick all her "fresh veg"!  Cheesy I want to come over and play.

Thanks! I have made so many more food things. I'm looking for a big picnic basket to put them all into, I was going to crochet one but I'm running out of time and also my knuckles are starting to really ache. This is a tough craft to do intensively.

Yeah take it easy on your hands. I've found getting a hook with a squishy cover for the part that you hold (think pencil cover....thing...I'm not good with words this morning apparently) really helps with sore hands. Either that or take a break to do something else that doesn't abuse your hands so much!  Cheesy

I've been at the cafe having coffee and crocheting, crocheting in the car while running errands (obviously I'm NOT the one driving, lol), I crochet in bed at night, I even crochet when I walk around town, I'm not kidding you. I used to walk and read so I have excellent peripheral vision, lol. The neighbours all ask what I'm making now, it's very funny. I have a weird callus on my yarn holding hand and I wake up with achey fingers. I have completely and totally overdone it, I know. But I really wanted to figure out some shaping and I had a very long list of items to make for that basket. I have 2 slices of bread and one slice of sandwich meat to do and then I'll be finished and can post pictures of it all together. You are going to be AMAZED at what I've managed to get in done a month and a half!

Good luck finding your basket! Maybe a local thrift store would have something that would work?  I love all these fruits and veggies, you have done an amazing job! I am looking forward to seeing it all together!

I found one today at the thrift shop, now to stitch up the gingham fabric I bought and put it all together. I'm so excited to give it to her!

Love them all! I need to make something similar for my daycare babies. They always destroy the plastic ones.
