Wrapping up raspberry season

Each year I forget what happens as we get later into the raspberry harvest. After stirring up a nest of yellow jackets this summer and getting nailed by one, I've been real cautious around them where ever they cross my path in the garden.  I don't have to worry as much about the ones that are making such a mess of the raspberries - not only are they really focused on what they're eating, but they also seem to get intoxicated, or maybe it's just stuffed.  Just think about how much they're eating (and all that sugar!) in relation to their body size!  Imagine if you stuffed your face into something so sweet and juicy and ate a serving the size of your head.  (Mmm that reminds me - it's almost thanksgiving!)
