It has started again.  The endless cycle is here, pick.snap.can.  We have just started to get green beans out of our big garden and as I started to snap beans for the first time this year, part of me felt like "uh, this is only the beginning of the many buckets full of green beans that I have to snap" but the other part of me was looking at the bright side, I get to watch movies while I snap the beans...  and this made me feel better.  I have snapped so many beans and watched so many movies already, it's ridiculous.  At the beginning I should have started counting how many buckets full of green beans I snap... You always think of those kinds of things when you're already halfway through though, don't you?  Moving on.  Some of the movies I've watched already include,  Wives and Daughters, North and South (I can never get tired of that one), and The Sound of Music.  Do you have any movie suggestions?  I need them, I'm quickly running out of ideas.  Help!   

On another note, it is so wonderful to have vegetables from our garden.  I always love to make homemade salsa in the summer with our onions, tomatoes, and peppers.  Ah, it's amazing, I must share the recipe once our tomatoes are ripe.  Do you have a garden?  What is your favorite summertime vegetable?

  1. You make canning look more romantic than it is with those pictures ;)
    As far as movies go... me and the girls *love* Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! But of course, when I need it most, the list of my favorite movies slip my mind lol :P
    Favorite vegetables:
    (I'm trying to like) Cucumbers
    ...and anything pickled :)

    Oh yes, and a recipe for salsa would be loverly, ma dear!

    Lovely post as always Jo!


    ps- if you see a post on canning peaches on our blog this week, know that I was not being a copy cat ;) I guess it's just that time of year where everything is mason jars and fresh produce.

  2. I think we should start a Wives and Daughters fandom :) lol
    Roger Hamley!
    And I agree with Charlotte! I LOVE Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! Or, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Gone with the Wind.

  3. Ich schlage "McClintock!" und "The Quiet Man" vor.

    John Wayne. Maureen O'Hara. Gut mit den Brechbohnen.

  4. I LOOOOVE me some tomatoes!!!!!!!!!!! Ooh I'd never heard of 'North and South'! Can you get them on DVD?

    I would suggest 'War Horse'. Sooooo good!!!!!!!!!!


    1. Yes, although you should know that it's the BBC North and South, because there is another movie called North and South. You should defiantly watch, it's one of my favorites!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a little note! I would love to hear your thoughts on this post. :)
