I do landscaping full time all year other than winter. I do snowplowing when it's snows and I also work on a dairy farm maybe 30-40 hrs a week to help make some spending money when there's no work.

I classify anything over 34 hours full time. I work 4 10's at the gas co, doing my billing and everything else after that on Monday and tuesday. Mow Wednesday thru Saturday, 34-36 hours on average. So therefore 40 hours gas co=full time and 34-36 hours my business= full time. Kinda simple math I think.

Full-Time

I'm retired after 31 years of the grocery Biz. Now it is 50-60 hours a week lawn care and when the snow starts to fly 10-12 walks to clear.
