Pinger I planted a couple hundred strawberries the way Buck is telling you to do it around Christmas last year. They've done well and have berries on them now. See Pic. But I planted around 1000 total this winter and I have them all over, some mulched with plastic, some with wheat straw, some with wood chips and some I haven't mulched yet. They're all doing pretty well.

They're a lot of work to keep them weeded, watered (they are shallow rooted) and to take off the daughter plants so anything you can do to help with this in setup will save you a lot of work later. Black Plastic helps a lot with all of those.
