Today we celebrate the life, and perhaps myth, of John Chapman who was born in 1774, and spread apple seeds across the Untied States growing an entire industry. Or at least supposedly. There are rumors that he wasn’t the generous humanitarian that many believe him to be. In fact, he may have found a ploy to take people’s property away from them. But, it’s always better to remember the legends of the people rather than what they really may have done. So here’s to Johnny Appleseed!
How to celebrate – Have an apple. Plant an apple tree. Visit an apple orchard.
