I did not trim my berries from winter and now they have leaves on them, should I do it now (if so, how much) or just leave them?

The canes that produced berries last year will not produce again this year. It's easy to tell: If you do your pruning soon after harvest, you'll see the remains of clusters where the berries have been removed. Since you waited until now, look for the darker canes with peeling bark and cut them down to ground level. The rest of the canes should produce fruit for you this year. Enjoy!
