The leaves are changing color as harvest time approaches…
This month, the USA celebrates Johnny Appleseed Day.
Johnny lived in the 18th century, and his real name was John Chapman.
According to Days of the Year, he travelled throughout Pennsylvania, Ontario, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, and the lands that would become West Virginia planting nurseries. He would fence them in and leave them in the care of a neighbor who would then sell shares in the trees, and then come back every year or two to tend them.
Celebrate his day with our book on Cider Apples. Cheers!
