Read Thread: An Interesting Question (or not)
Statistics can lie. Here in the Frozen Tundra we call Alaska we have maybe 3 or 4 active boxers in our whole state. Yet we seem to get a lot of finds/plants above the statistical ratio.
in a land of boxing tourists
I believe that there is a Mark Twain quote about that.
Also I was oversimplifying, as I said. I think that you maintain you ratio because of visitors. I think that Hawaii could do that too with fewer boxers in that state because they get even more visitors than Alaska. The fun of being a tourist destination.
The find ratio to number of boxes placed also increases as your planting area expands. We would never have had as many visitors to our boxes had we not been fortunate enough to plant in many states, and frequently along oft-traveled routes.
