Johnny Appleseed Day
Today is Johnny Appleseed Day. The story that I always heard in school was that Johnny aka John Chapman was a dreamy young man that wandered the country planting apple seeds. But research now shows that he carefully and in an organized way planted apple trees during a period of 50 years. He bought and sold tracts of land and developed thousands of productive apple trees. So many of the apples and variety of apples we have today can be due to Johnny Appleseed. So let's honor him with something apple today.
