"He's got grass down" is farm talk for mowing down a grassy field to make hay or silage. I took this photo this morning over at "the twenty", that's farm talk for twenty acres that we own across the road. We don't farm our own land any more, it's all leased out to a neighboring farmer. All day yesterday he was mowing our fields and his. Tonight the crew came over with the big rakes, choppers, dump boxes and trucks. Here in farm country this activity is called "puttin' up feed". It worked out pretty cool that today is the letter G and it's a big day here for grass. The letter G is missing in a lot of farm talk, which I call "farmese".
Just a few examples:
puttin' up feed
talkin' to the bank
oh...this list just goes on and on...
guess I was purty lucky to find a G today...doncha think?
this is kind of a goofy post...but it's been a long day and I'm plum tuckered.
