    get noun + noun

    What is meant by "I got grains the size of a walnut lately"?

    My milk kefir grains also love the home pasteurised milk too, I got grains the size of a walnut lately, something I havenít seen before.
    Then again, they were dormant for about three weeks, kind of hibernating.
    It appears they have woken up quite hungry, so I have to feed them the best milk Iíve got.
    More about the milk kefir grains hibernating in my next post.

    Re: get noun + noun

    If you search for "kefir grains" on Google Images, you get this. As you can see, the grains can differ in size. The writer is saying that some of their grains recently have been as big as walnuts.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
