Response to Skidmore (Original post)

2. We stopped off at a fruit stand today, and were told

that a LOT of folks around here (SW Ohio) lost their raspberry and blackberry crops this year, presumably thanks to the brutal winter.

Mine and my dad's patches seem to be coming along gangbusters, but we're growing black raspberries that I started from wild black raspberries I got out in the woods a decade or so back, so I suspect they're hardier than the cultivated varieties. Just in case, I'm thinking of maybe dumping some of the leaves in the patch late this fall when I rake, rather than putting everything in the compost, since I suspect brutal winters are going to become more common. I lost about half my garlic crop that was overwintering.
