This woman is tying up the bundles of rice, which will then be placed to dry on a bamboo pole (you can see an example from this earlier photo).
A wonderful series and a fine gallery for your signature green.

Labor intensive work for these dedicated farmers. Tell me, why does she wear a face mask (covering) while doing this?

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks for your comment and visit. She is wearing a mask because tying up the stalks creates a fair amount of dust.
Such a lot of work and dedication.

The Amish here do something similar with the tobacco, which they harvest by hand. She is wearing a fabulous gardening hat!
