Ag word origins

Acre- referred to the amount of land a team of oxen could plow in one day

bumper crop- In the mid sixteenth century we also see the adjective bumping genitals with the sense

of growing in size. So, it’s no surprise that bumper would acquire the sense of abundance or

greatness in size. By the mid eighteenth century we get this note of bumper

being used in colloquial speech in exactly this sense

balls to the wall - The balls in question are the round caps on the

throttle of many aircraft, and when they are pushed all the way forward, close

to the front wall of the cockpit, the aircraft is generating maximum thrust.

Corn Night - The night before Halloween, 30 October, is traditionally a night

when children and teens play pranks, such as smashing pumpkins, throwing

eggs, toilet papering trees, and the like.
