run-to-seed patches

Postby dudati » Wed Jun 23, 2010 9:17 am

Hola, tengo una duda. Habla una zona de una ciudad.
"It was an exceedingly poor part, run-down, with a few broken-down family houses, but splendid old run-to-seed patches that you could do somethig with, though the soil was poor".

old run-to-seed patches: "un espléndido terreno agotado para plantar???"

gracias

Take a look at this:

http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/run+to+seed

From what I can tell, this seems to be roughly equivalent to "neglected". Entonces, quizá se traduce como "parcelas arrinconadas"?

Thank you, Brandon

Lo voy a traducir como "abandonadas".
