I think I have summer bearing, can I cut them back after summer harvesting and then again in spring before blooming?

If you started noticing small fruit in spring, and they are ready to eat by early to mid summer, then they will be summer bearing. If they take until mid fall to ripen then they will be considered fall bearing.

If it turns out to be a fall bearing type, then this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/raspberry/fall-bearing-raspberry-pruning.htm
