I could be wrong on this, but, in my memory, I usually don’t include a long central answer when I do a 10-stack or 11-stack in the corners. It’s usually because I do all I can to make the long corner stacks work, and that usually eventually means blocks in the center. But, this time, it worked out that the corner stacks had to be a little isolated from the rest of the grid (17/57/61-Across were all seeds in the corners, and I really wanted to make all of them work), and so none of the columns intersecting the corner stacks reached all the way to or through the center row of the grid. Thus, I looked for a good 13 or 15, as well as two eights or nines I could put above and below it, from the trusty seed list, and found three (28/36/41-Across) that worked well together.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Friday!
