Question about Raspberries
Last year we were unable to harvest many raspberries because the entire patch was vibrating with hornets and wasps.
This year there are still bug issues but no hornets or wasps.
As the patch is vibrating with grasshoppers this year, I'm pointing the finger mainly at them along I realize there are other pests at work. I have seen a few lygus bugs around and they are supposed to be bad this year too so it might be them as well.
Anyway, this is my question. Most of the damaged fruit look like something has be nibbling or sucking the juice out of a few sections of each berry. Would you consider it safe to still harvest these berries?
There are many "perfect" berries still that I plan on freezing whole, I would only use the damaged berries for preserves or jams so they would be cooked.
