Similar to the last puzzle, figure out the vegetables:

  1. A 🀼 a->an,n->? $\boxed{8}-\tau$
  2. Bag->Cab(πŸ›„) 2021-1980
  3. $(TO)_2+F$
  4. β›½ K out$\times$ ??
  5. πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈ I $\boxed{6}$ $F=kx$
  6. πŸ”ƒ 🀰
  7. πŸ₯Ά
  8. $90$deg=$\frac \pi 2$? 🐠-$\boxed9$
  9. πŸ”ƒ iP
  10. 🍳 🌱
  11. $\boxed{11}$-(v+1) +$Cu_2$
  12. Negative-a+0
  13. $Β£20237+\boxed{Β£7500}\leftarrow$
  14. 🍷 πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ
  15. $\boxed{^{27}}$ πŸƒ A,an,?

Here's a Community Wiki answer to try and get all of them between us...

  1. A 🀼 a->an,n->? $\boxed{8}-\tau$

ASPARAGUS = A + SPAR + A (since 'a' is the article that precedes a word beginning with 'n', much as 'an' precedes a word beginning with 'a') + (-au)GUS(-t) (removing 'tau') (@Stiv)

  1. Bag->Cab(πŸ›„) 2021-1980

Suspect this is CABBAGE but it seems overclued? BAGGAGE with Bag->Cab seems (almost) sufficient without the additional AGE calculation at the end...? (@Stiv)

  1. $(TO)_2+F$

TOMATO = TO + MA (Newton's Second Law) + TO (@Stiv)

  1. β›½ K out$\times$ ??

PUMPKIN = PUMP + K + IN (opposite of 'out') (@Stiv)

  1. πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈ I $\boxed{6}$ $F=kx$

ARTICHOKE = ART + I + C (Carbon = element#6) + HOOKE (@Stiv)

  1. πŸ”ƒ 🀰

Possibly SPINACH = SPIN + ACHE (if we interpret the woman holding her stomach as being in pain rather than pregnant?) (@Stiv)

  1. πŸ₯Ά

CHILLI = Homophone of 'chilly' (@Stiv)

  1. $90$deg=$\frac \pi 2$? 🐠-$\boxed9$

RADISH = RAD + (-f)ISH (Fluorine = element#9) (@Stiv)

  1. πŸ”ƒ iP

TURNIP = TURN + IP (@Stiv)

  1. 🍳 🌱

EGGPLANT = EGG + PLANT (@Stiv)

  1. $\boxed{11}$-(v+1) +$Cu_2$

CUCUMBER = CU + CU + (-nove)MBER (removing 'v' + 'one') (@Stiv)

  1. Negative-a+0

ONION = O + (-a)NION (@Stiv)

  1. $Β£20237+\boxed{Β£7500}\leftarrow$

Not yet solved.

  1. 🍷 πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ

GINGER = GIN + GER(many) (@Stiv)

  1. $\boxed{^{27}}$ πŸƒ A,an,?

Possibly CORN = Cobalt + ran with the A, an, saying to remove the vowel? (@SteveV)

    $\begingroup$ @trolley813 Not sure - I also considered rot13(pbevnaqre = Pb + Ena + Qre (Trezna cersvk)) even though that's really a herb rather than a vegetable. Then again we've got a couple of fruits (technically) on this list anyway, so who's to say?! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I've considered that too, so yes, it's probably still unclear. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ As for 13, my only thought was (Orrgebbg=Ovg(pbva, £20237 vf arneyl 0.5 OGP, v.r.unys bs ovgpbva)+???). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @00xxqhxx00 Aha, I see the wordplay for 1 now, thanks. Re the to-veg-or-not-to-veg debate, I was just referring to things like this, which holds for #11 too - not a criticism, just a remark that perhaps we need to cast our net more widely for some of these :) $\endgroup$
