Some areas recently had heavy hail, which pits developing fruit and rips leaves dramatically. Did your garden catch one of those storm showers? One clue is if berries exposed are damaged, but those under other branches or leaves seem fine. Birds sometimes will peck at leaves, causing these tears. To catch insects in the act, go out at night with a flashlight and check the leaves for critters.
