Oi! You’ve missed one….!

“Waste not, want not” is what my granddad used to say.

Sloppy stuff seen during the Grumbeerernte*.

Local dialect for “potato harvest”

What was that?

You thought they’re called Kartoffeln in German?

Well, you must have gone to a very flash school.

Around here, they’re Grumbeeren – Earth Berries, if you want the original usage

  2. I think that “earth berries” is far more poetic. I got the translation for the first term, but Grumbeeren was translated as Grumbeeren on a Google site.
