A view along rows of sprouts in a large field, with some women farmers bent over picking them. All the women are wearing green and pointed hats. There are greenhouses visible in the background to the left, and the field is cordoned off by a hedge running along the middle of the painting. There is a farmhouse to the right, and hills in the distance behind, both of which are painted in soft browns to give the illusion of their distance.
