My raspberries were growing well until they blossomed,and set fruit. The berries are drying up as they ripen.The plants leaves have turned a yellowish green. Next years canes look healthy.
Do you have any thoughts on this?
Thank you for your time.

I suspect your plants are being attacked by Tarnished Plant Bugs. Their feeding can cause the fruits to dry up and the leaves to become a yellowish green. It's not a positive diagnosis, though, so carefully inspect your plants several times a day to see if you can find these insect pests.
