Many of you know that I spent about four months in Washington State in a landscaping and gardening internship early this Spring. In early July, I decided that it was time to head back home to start a new season and continue my experience in the landscaping field. I thought I would share some pictures from our trip, starting with a few pictures of the Washington backdrop!
It’s pretty obvious that salmon are a ‘kind of a big deal’ around here in Washington. Anyone who lives here could either tell you when the opening seasons for the different species are, or they can tell you where their favorite fishing spot is, whether it is out in the bay or up a local stream.
What are Pennsylvania Raisins? Well, my cousin, Jere White, could tell you all about them! Jere and his family live in Tioga County, Pennsylvania, about three hours North of Lancaster County.
On February 22nd, 2011, My older brother Garrison, my buddy Alan and I departed from Manheim, Pennsylvania to travel across the country to Port Hadlock/Port Townsend, Washington State. We left around 6:00am in the morning and drove the entire day to our first destination, Marion, Illinois, where Garrison resides with his wife, Terran and her family. We arrived in Illinois that evening and spent the next two nights at Garrison’s house.
In about 25 days, I will be leaving to travel to the Pacific Northwest territory, Washington State! There, I will be interning with Matthew Berberich, Professional Gardening Services I will be there for about six months, where I will be working for and learning from Matt. The unique thing about this internship is that Matt has been through the same ‘Professional Gardener Training Program’ that I recently completed in December ’10.
