Introduction to 3rd Year Focus

RR 5/15/13


My second year was spent focusing on greenhouse production. I found that it took a lot of time to manage and that I needing more training in other elements of the operation. So, this year, instead of focusing on one particular element, I want to be open to accomplishing tasks in as many elements as possible. To me, this means to be aware of what jobs there are to do (that no one else is assigned to) and to prioritize those jobs and finish them in a timely manner.  It also means that I’ll need to work with others so they may accomplish their tasks.  That being said, I do want to find jobs with in the elements that challenge me to operate machinery such as tractors, trucks, mowers, weed-whackers, tillers, and power tools.  These are the things that have frightened me in the past and I desperately need to gain experience with them.  My hope is that by the end of the year I would have the ability to continue working on these skills for a future job or training program.


To be open and aware of different tasks around the farm, particularly those that I find challenging, and to do my best to complete the task.
