It either means you're bringing the potatoes in or it is the reason the basement is leaking. I'm not exactly sure.
I'm thinking they're trees around the house and the roots from the trees are somehow getting through the house
My mother's house has two huge trees outside, and their roots have affected the foundations. Now one door doesn't close properly. (This is in rural England, btw.)
Is this a very awkward way of expressing that your parents and grandparents are visiting?
no, a more appropriate interpretation would be that roots are getting in the house as per Catriona28475's comment
I keep getting corrected for not including the definite article. Mzizi can be "the roots" or just "roots", so I wonder why both answers are not accepted. Any ideas ndugu?
