If all the palindromes between 100 and 1000 were listed in order from smallest to largest, what is the average of the two numbers in the middle of the list?

NOTE: A palidrome is a number which reads the same forward and backward. For example, if you reverse the digits of 97279, you still have 97279.

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.
