Last night three girls in wet swim suits put on rubber gloves, and performed delicate surgery on a mid sized zucchini with heart disease. They carefully cut into his chest, exposed his heart cavity, removed the diseased heart and replaced it with a perfectly formed strawberry. Then they replaced the outer chunk of skin, and wrapped white cloth strips around the wound. You could hardly see any scar.
Last I saw the patient he was on his way to North Carolina to recuperate. The surgery was photographed and when it is transferred to my computer I'll post it with this account.
The following surgery on a tomato was less successful.
