Garlic Farmers

The end of summer is the beginning of garlic season. I actually took this photo while walking the Olle 14-1 for the Gotjawal Olle story.  The farmers own their fields individually, but it's a community effort to plant and pick the fields.  If they don't want to work in the fields alone, they call all of their children and friends and families, get in line and work in the fields.  It's hard work sitting in the fields all day, but they have a good time laughing and joking.  The Koreans have unbelievable flexibility and can squat for hours on end, but I especially like the little butt pads they use!
