It is possible to get your tasks but preparation is the key. When we found out what products and baskets would appear on the board most of our hood started stacking. Then those of us with enough fields filled them with strawberries and grew overnight.
We were ready when the tasks appeared and that way were able to complete quickly. I did three baskets within the first 3 hours because I had stuff ready. Have done 8 now and am sitting back to help others catch up.

Its a painfully slow process if you have to wait hours and hours to make products
