Blueberry Harvester, 07/2012 to 08/2012 Alan Grant – Columbia Me During the blueberry season in Maine I worked for Alan Grant running his blueberry harvester. It is a one person job to operate the tractor. I drove it in circles in fields making a three foot path every lap. Everything on the harvester is controlled by two control panels. The harvester consist of a rotating head with rakes that pick up the berries which fall into a conveyor belt coming out of the head into another conveyor belt. There's blowers that blow all the leaves and trash out of the berries before the blueberries land on the back conveyor belt which puts them in a big yellow tote. After two totes are full then I would have to drop the forks that holds them up and drops the totes on the ground and continue on with a fresh empty tote. When the harvester broke down I would have to figure out what was wrong and fix it myself and maintain it. This work shift would go on for twelve hours a day, seven days a week for a month. I've done this job for two years now and loved it but its only a seasonal job.
Lobstering, 05/2012 to 11/2012 Glen Smith – Addison, ME I worked on a lobster boat for four days a week fishing in the Addison bay. My job involved baiting bait bags, tending to the head trap, and banding lobsters. My boss and I would haul two traps up at a time, a head trap and a taylor trap. We would take out everything and keep any lobsters that are legal. Then baited the traps and threw them back overboard and picked up the next two and repeated the process all day until we hauled all 400 traps. There's a limit of 800 traps that we were allowed to fish and we hauled half every time we went out. The traps stay in the water for 3-4 nights for it to be worth going to haul.
Logging, 03/2002 to 04/2012 Dad – Cherryfield, ME I worked in the woods part time with my dad on our land cutting firewood and dragging it out with a tractor. We cut four foot length as well as fitted wood. When we weren't cutting firewood we cut tree length spruce and fur and draged it out into a pile where Robert Ramsay would come and pick it up with a logging truck and a crane.
lawn care, 04/2001 to 09/2009 John Brace – Cherryfield, ME I worked part time for John Brace mowing his lawn which was a very big place to mow. There was a lot of weed whacking involved. It was a never ending task. There was always something that needed to be done around the place besides mowing and weed whacking.
