: We are looking for the meaning of the expression "Go to grass and eat green peaches" Has anyone ever heard it? It was used as an oath by a woman who was born in 1890.


Look in our archive (top of previous page, search box) under "Go to grass." Your little old lady meant "Go away and stop bothering me," or any of the similar whimsical instructions quoted by ESC in the archived discussion.

Make like a tree and leave.
Go tell your mother she wants you.
Put an egg in your shoe and beat it.
Here's your hat, what's your hurry.
Don't let the door hit you on your way out, (OR)
Don't let the door hit you where the Good Lord split you.
