Castle Bisset

MARCH 11, 2021

Johnny Appleseed Day honors one of America's great legends. Johnny Appleseed was a real person. Born John Chapman, he was among the American settlers who were captivated by the movement west across the continent. As Johnny Appleseed travelled west, he sold apple trees and seeds to settlers, and planted many apple trees himself along the way. Johnny Appleseed continued planting and selling apple trees for over forty years. With every apple tree that was planted, the legend grew.

John Chapman (aka Johnny Appleseed) was born on September 26, 1774. He was a nurseryman who started out planting trees in western New York and Pennsylvania. During the life of John Chapman, the "West" was places like Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois. He was a deeply religious person He was known to preach during his travels. According to legend, he led a simple life and wanted little. He rarely accepted money and often donated any money he received. It is believed that he died on March 11, 1845, from what was referred to as the "winter plague". The actual date of his death has been disputed.

Celebrate today with an apple rich menu. Include fresh apples for snacks, and some applesauce or apple pie for dessert. And, make plans to plant an apple tree.
