We had a nice rain storm the other evening but it was accompanied by hail. Hosta do not like hail. I am glad the season is almost over. If this had happened in May I would have really felt bad..

Yeah that slug IS gross. I feel your pain about the hail Paul. I just looked for pics of 2011 hosta after our early summer hail storm. Not a one!
