A farmer puts in many hours a day working. Many times there are not enough hours in the day for the farmer to complete his chores, harvest the crops, transport the crops, and fix his farm equipment. A farmer has so much to do that he and his family rarely go on vacations. Time to relax are found in between the chores and other various times. A farmer has a unique work ethic.
  • Think about what chores you are responsible for.
  • How do you go about your work?
  • What attitude do you have toward your jobs?
