We have recently moved to a home with existing raspberry bushes. I have no idea how to take care of them. I have recently weeded it and cut back some dead branches. I'm concerned because they don't seem to be producing many berries. What is producing seem to be drying up before I can pick them. There is also fungal looking dirt around one of the bushes. What should I do at this point in the season? Should I just let them go this year and start over next spring?

You could try pruning and perhaps amending the soil around the bushes with compost or organic matter.
