Johnny Appleseed Day: Really. Here’s what Wikipedia says about him: Jonathan Chapman (September 26, 1774 – March 18, 1845), also known as Johnny Appleseed, was an American pioneer nurseryman who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. He became an American legend while still alive, largely because of his kind and generous ways, his great leadership in conservation, and the symbolic importance he attributed to apples. Lot of links! But you can celebrate in style – head to Narrow Lane Orchard just over the EG line in North Kingstown (off South Road). They’ve got lots of varieties and it’s just plain beautiful there.
