Wacky Wednesday – Johnny Appleseed Day

John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed,  was born on September 26, 1774, in Leominster, Massachusetts.  Beginning in 1802 he wandered through northern and Midwestern states planting apple nurseries.  Many of his seeds were collected from cider presses in Pennsylvania.  His trees fed many settlers and legend says he was loved wherever he went.

So enjoy a fresh apple in his honor, or perhaps some applesauce or a slice of apple pie.
