Happy New Year! I am a four-digit year, and my last two digits are a perfect square. The sum of my first and third digits is a perfect square. My second digit is a perfect square. All my digits add to a perfect square.

If you subtract my third digit from my first digit, you get a perfect square.
Oh, by the way, I'm a perfect square.
What year am I?
My digits are all odd, and they add to 18. My first digit is four more than my last digit, the product of my digits is between 300 and 315, and I am less than 100,000. If my digits are not in descending order, what numbers could I be?
The number of grapes on my grape vine is a three digit number. It is 7 times as much as the number of grapes on the vine last year, and 11 times the number of grapes on the vine the previous year. Next year, if I have twice as many grapes as I do this year, the number of grapes will still be a three digit number, but if I have three times as many grapes, the number of grapes will be a four digit number. If I have 21 times as many grapes, the number of grapes will be a five digit number.
