I live in lower Northern Michigan. Can I plant blueberries, raspberries, and/or strawberries in the fall and have them still alive in the spring?

If you can find potted specimins of any of the plants, you can plant them any time. Potted plants have more developed root systems and will adjust more quickly to their new environment than bare-root plants. I'd wait until early spring to plant bare-root plants, to avoid winter damage.
