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.
