"Want some leather britches, Hon?"

I had no idea "leather britches" were dried beans, LOL!

She said they were called that because that's what the dried green bean felt and tasted like if you tried to eat them dry. Here she is giving out samples of hominy.

There also was a girl next to the stand, stringing the beans to dry. They looked like pretty necklaces!

The guy in the background was explaining how to graft apple trees.

Edit: We met Norma again a year later, while she was shelling beans on the porch of the farm house.

irgendwie erinnert mich das foto an den film 'baby boom' mit diane keaton - kennst du den?
geschäftsfrau erbt unverhofft ein kind, geht deshalb aufs land und beginnt, apfelbrei (zuerst nur für ihr baby) selbst zu machen... bietet dann den überschuß wegen geldmangel im dorfladen an und für durchreisende städter ist der brei DIE entdeckung...

Nein, den Film selber kenn ich nicht, nur den Titel. Aber genau so ist das hier.
