If this is a play on words, your subconscious is saying that for some reason you have begun to feel as productive as an inanimate, uprooted vegetable. Get up and become an active participant in life again!
Each vegetable in a dream has a different interpretive value.
For example, a carrot is a masculine emblem that also represents vision and luck. Additionally, as an omen, carrots symbolize forthcoming wealth, health, and happy marriages.
Dreaming of eating celery is an omen of love and affection. Cauliflower growing in a garden foretells increased business prospects, corn might depict a “corny” personality or the promise of improved finances, and beans carry a magical overtone thanks to the story of “Jack and the Beanstalk.”
Root vegetables denote grounding, a connection to your family, and the staples of both spiritual and mundane life.

Dreams of an orphan signify that you are feeling alone, lonely, cast out, uprooted, ungrounded, unloved, and maybe even victimized. You are in the midst of transformation, walking through the phase where you feel cast out from your former comfort zone, and you are having to find your own strength. During this challenging time, between the old and the new; don’t give up, keep moving as you do some soul searching that will lead you to the home that is within you.

The roots of a tree represent your unconscious mind, as well as your childhood and your past, the ’roots’ from which you have grown.
If the roots in your dream appear strong, this suggests that the past is still heavily influencing your present. It could also suggest that your past was stable and supportive. If, on the other hand, the tree in your dream was a young one, the message may be that you are in the process of putting down your roots or establishing yourself in the waking world. A dream in which the roots are in the sky suggests wisdom and insight. Spreading roots would indicate an ability to relate well to others, whereas deep roots would suggest a more self-contained attitude. An uprooted tree symbolizes a feeling of being uprooted in waking or spiritual life. Are you losing your hold on the ground? Roots symbolize home, family and stability.
