Megan I feel like we had all the fun and you did all the work! I like what Wyldflower said about the lemons.
I'm really curious to find out how others came up with thier guess?? anyone want to tell their stategy for guessing? Megan you must of had a guess?
I think we were the lowest gues and off by a mile ! but our thinking was that if the plant was to grow up the side of a building how far could it reach on the main stem and then count the side shoots . Obviously I've never grown this before and underestimated the vigor of this thing! can't believe there was that much there!

Glad you all enjoyed it so much. I had fun, too! Very Happy

Garden Angel, I was thinking somewhere around 225 feet, so I was low, too! In the photo showing the front view, that vine lying on the ground was actually doubled back on itself at least twice. If you look closely you can see that there are a LOT of leaves there on the ground....that is from the multiple branches. It did sort of the same thing in the back, too, plus just a lot of branches.

I found that it put down secondary roots in a number of places. It managed to set down roots into my rear SFG bed, too, when it crossed over that, and I think that's why I suddenly had so many vines in the back.
