working among cabbages, smoke beyond the greenhouse

working among cabbages, smoke beyond the greenhouse

This fine fall day comes a few days after rains. Some run off from the hillside on the left is covering the road that hugs the edge of the slope. The farmer in the distance is working among the hearty cabbages; some ready for sale, gifting, or consumption; others will be left into the winter weeks and harvested then. The light truck sits at the edge of his field.

Low angled afternoon sun highlights the clouds of smoke behind the distant greenhouses as somebody reduces the rice chaff from recent harvest to ash that will fortify the soil of the paddy or other garden lands. Out of sight to the immediate left of this picture is an egg-laying installation, perhaps 30-40m in length in two or three parallel buildings with big blower fans on the end to circulate fresh air. There is very little smell in the way this space is designed.
