Wonderful shades of green in this shot GJC! It definitely looks like back-breaking work! ;-)

My back hurts already....but we do it anyway because of the love and the need and the drive to do it...this is so wonderful. I love the story here...

Lovely image! I does look like there is much work ahead for this person, but it feels as if she is content to be doing it :)

I really enjoy these small vignettes of rural life.

The older they get, the more present they are in gardens and fields!! I wonder what their secret might be????I can never do it because I simply never did it! And NOW it makes me think of all those farmers in Tohoku who would love to go out and tend to their fields, BUT....they have no such field anymore...Only their fingers aching TO DO the job...

@Japanalia: Beautifully said. Certainly here as well, ALL the people you see cultivating the fields are in the 60s or much older. It truly makes me wonder, not only about their incredible stamina, but about the future of farming in Japan. And what you say of Tohoku had not occurred to me, but how sad that is indeed.
