How can you use this squash drawing? As an autumn vegetable, it would fit right in with a cornucopia of produce or alongside a turkey dinner drawing.
The butternut squash is roughly pear-shaped, like an hourglass or a peanut but larger at the bottom than at the top. This drawing includes both a whole squash and one that has been cut open to reveal the seeds inside.
