A stormy night

We seem to be under a constant forecast for 'isolated' or 'scattered' thunderstorms with no real indication of where or when they will happen.

Last night one swept through dropping over 2 inches of rain and some hail.

The rhubarb took a lot of hits

The lettuce especially looks stunned

One hailstone tore through this grape leaf

Was it the torrential rain that did this to the lettuce?
I miss those nights when we would get a few hundredths of an inch of soft, gentle rain. It's not just that the garden is mud again but it's very steamy out there and uncomfortable.
