Good luck on that, it will be a tasty harvest one way or another.
I believe there was an experiment done with tomato plants. Maybe someone else remembers it. There were six or eight greenhouses, of which, tomatoes were started under identical conditions and some greenhouses played different music and others did not.

The expirement showed that music somehow seemed to stimulate the plants' growth. It is interesting that the tomatoes listening to Classical and Heavy Metal music had grown the most!

Question: Does the winning guess have to be the closest to or closest without going over the amount of fingers?

Yep, back before 1989 we had that here, when we were mass producing food. Nothing now.

Me too, algebra is not my strongest suit. But if I'm going to finish my degree, than it must be done. Good luck to you. I know it is really frustrating.

Could you describe that one a bit more? I will need to come up with something if there is a tie.

Always starting trouble aren't you? LOL No, I understand your point. Because going over will probably cause a tie between two guesses. I'll have to come up with a tie-breaker of sorts. Maybe Lorax's is onto a good idea too. Thanks for asking this important question Patty.

Thanks Chris...reason I asked is, the last contest I picked 200 & Pete picked 275. There was 248 fingers on so Pete was the closest, but I won because the rule was "closest without going over the amount". (Sorry Pete)
With everyone picking a different #, there can't be a tie. Thanks for the contest!

I think that perhaps I'll have to do a runner-up, winner pays s/h, or maybe I'll send a small plant for free. I haven't decided on anything for certain yet. I have 10 pups, and I'm only going to allow four or five to remain in the mat over winter. I'm also considering the possibility of holding an auction later on too. Thanks again for your thoughts Patty.
