Hail after planting

I could not believe it today, after planting out all the warm season crops yesterday it went mad and hailed this afternoon!
Luckily it was brief and the stones were quite small and nothing seems to have been damaged so far. Then half an hour later the sun was back out.
We harvested all of the silver beet that featured in yesterdays blog post, there's tons of it, and we have another bed in the old vege patch. We'll have to blanch some of it and make some bags of frozen ready for shepherds' pies at short notice.
I planted some hailstone (yes) and salad crunch radish seeds and three rows of top crop bean seeds. Just about run out of room now.
