Well I just got home and it's dark so I'll have to do the count in the morning.

If I wasn't tired from a 6 hour round-trip drive and over 3 hours of marching around a private citrus collection today (about 100 varieties), I'd have a hard time sleeping tonight with all of the suspense!

Don't forget, if you end up counting too many you can always thin a little before you count them all!

WOW!!!

I was thinking I'd guess a little higher than the 159 or so you had last year but not that high! I thought Pete was really crazy with his guess but I guess he was only a little crazy.

Congrats to Patty and to Mitchel for all of those bananas!!!

I was a little shocked at the number too! At one point I said to myself, "am I done yet!" I had to put my step ladder on top of a sawhorse table and make several moves with both table and ladder to count them. I think the next contest will be with a dwarf variety, I'm getting to old to live this dangerously!

Btw, this bunch sets a new record for my garden!
