Cucumber farmer work hard to clean their crop of cucumbers. 

Ahsanul Haque Nayem managed to capture these shots as the farmers prepare to sell the cucumbers at markets.  Ahsanul said “The farmers dig a hole in the ground and filling it with water. They then soak the cucumbers in the water and clean them.  The cleaned cucumbers are then put in plastic bags ready for sale.”

These sacks of cucumbers each weigh around 60-70kg and sell for around £7 per sack. These specific ones have been cleaned and packaged in Tarash Upazila in Sirajganj distract in Bangladesh, but are sent to markets all across the country.<br />
