Raspberries/pine needle ground cover?

I have a pretty good size raspberry patch, and a very large pine tree that drops a ton of needles. My husband wants me to use the needles as a mulch in the raspberry patch, would this cause any harm to the raspberries? I live in a river valley so the soil is a sandy/gravel mix if that makes a difference. Any input would be greatly appreciated. [flower]

[wayey] Hi erica and welcome.

I have a big patch of raspberries too.lucky us huh?

I think those pine needles would be a great mulch.

I wish I had more available.

Do you have any good recipes you'd like to share?

Thanks duckie for your response. I love having my raspberry patch. This is only the second summer I've been in my house so last year we had a lot of ice cream with fresh raspberries,yum. [flower]
