Signs
Description of Sign Action


beans
"G" hand brushes twice against the stationary pointer finger of the other hand.
carrots
Use the thumb of a right "A" hand to make an imaginary mark on the palm of the left hand, moving from the top of the palm to the wrist. Hint: The sign is representative of peeling the skin off a carrot.
cauliflower The "F" hand brushes across the right side of the forehead twice, back to front.
celery
Place a right "A" hand near the mouth and then move it forward, arcing slightly. Hint: The sign pantomimes taking a bite of a celery stick.
corn
Wiggle the index finger of a right "D" hand just under the nose. Note: the imagery is for corn on the cob.
lettuce
Tap "L" hand twice on forehead as in a "head" of lettuce. For cabbage, use the "C" hand
onion
Make a right "X" hand and then close the space between the index finger and thumb so that they touch. Place the knuckle of the index finger (still in the position described) against the right temple, rotating the wrist toward the front.
peas
Touch the middle finger of a right "P" hand several times on the index finger of the left "D" hand to indicate the individual peas found in a pod.
potato
Using a right curved "v" hand, mimic piercing a potato (letting the left "s" hand represent the potato.)
