Summer Harvest of cabbages in Germany

We live in a farming community and there's a harvest at least three times a year: in spring, summer and fall.

In photo #1 I attempted a triangles composition.

The vegetables are all of the type which must be harvested by hand. The migrant workers are from Eastern Europe and work 12-hour days from dawn (6AM) to dusk (8PM in summer, 6 PM in spring and fall) and in all weather.

The crew for cabbages is in photo #1 is tiny compared to the 100-member crews which work one row at the same time to harvest onions, asparagus and carrots.

The air stinks during the green onion harvest.
