Answer: Strawberries do best in full sun and rich, well-drained soil. It sounds like yours are suffering from a common malady, gray mold, also known as botrytis. The fruit are probably watersoaked, especially if they aren't getting enough sun to dry off morning dew. You may be able to improve your situation by mulching under the plants with a thick layer of dry straw, which should help keep berries off the ground and help them dry more quickly. Also, don't water plants too much after fruit set. They tend to take up a lot of moisture, which makes them soft and more succeptible to rot. Hope this helps!
