So This is What Hail Does

Below is a picture of what hail can do to strawberry.  A friend forwarded me these pictures of what a freak hailstorm a few days ago over his field left behind.  Shredded leaves, pitted and bruised fruit right down to pretty undeveloped green ones, even on the flower.  This storm represents a huge setback for his farm.

I'd have a hard time getting up and facing the day after a loss like this, but nevertheless you growers do it as a matter of course.

Bless you for the work you do and the food you grow for us in spite of the curveballs Mother Nature can throw at you.
