Did you plant a garden this year? We did. Yesterday I spoke to my parents about their garden plans and I got this answer----
"We are going to make garden today. " Make garden....My folks use these words to describe the act of planting and marking the rows. Present tense, I guess ....Making garden happens only once a year, and after the fact, they say....."we planted a garden this year." Language used in my family only?
My Nana had her own vocabulary, some examples include
Davenport ----sofa or couch
Nightdress------pajamas or nightgown
Soda Water-----7 Up
Her Man-----that person's husband
My favorite of my Nana's phrases was the word "Possible" for part of a woman's anatomy......when asked why she used that phrase,,, she said simply "It's important to wash up as far as possible and down as far as possible.
My Nana, she was great.
