He was just in the chat last night. He said he was going to have to get out the big ladder to finish counting the fingers!

But when I resumed counting late this afternoon, low-and-behold there was another hand developing a few fingers. I'm not sure how many at this point, I wanted to wait until morning since the inflorescense seems to only grow at night.

Counting will resume today at first light, Aug. 27

When everyones' guess started to climb over one-hundred, I was thinking to myself 'no way.' Maybe next season I will have to get some good fert and start a regular feeding cycle. Maybe JackDaw's wish will come true with 400!! Ha
