This is a blog by a former CEO of a large Boston hospital to share thoughts about hospitals, medicine, and health care issues.
Gee, in the horticulture world we call these 'volunteers'. "Feral"??!! Implies it might reach out and bite you. Looking forward to photos of the feral fruit!nonlocal
Well, it might be a Beefsteak or Big Boy!
I'm a gardener, and while I would normally call this a "volunteer", I love the idea of "feral" tomatoes! I see them every once in a while, and I hope someone will love them just a little. :)(My medical professional husband passed your Saturday post along to me, and suggested I read it and this post.)
From Facebook:Suzanne: Amazing how one little plant can make the best in us come out and now we can follow it on fb.Justin: Sadly that tomato now looks better than some of my tomatoes.Claire: It looks better than all my tomato plants the spring rain killed.
And now "feral" peas are volunteering to sprout in people's throats too!
Perhaps you should give us the cite to that...
Bravo Brendon and his team! Fine examples of BIDMC employees at the Hospital with a heart.
Surprisingly, the stake was changed. Apparently, someone complained that the broomstick handle was not fitting for such a tomato (or perhaps was not good for it). It took the guys in operations a saw and a sheet of wood to fashion out the more fitting stake it has now.
In Washington, DC where I live, this story would make the nightly news! It says a lot about a hospital staff that takes care of even the neediest with love and creativity. Thank you Justin!
