I have never grown strawberries however my friend has and I have observed them (and tasted them!) over the years. They are delicious!
The main problem with growing strawberries is harvesting them before the birds get them! You will want to purchase some bird netting to keep them away from the ripening berries.
Also, when the berries are ripening and getting heavier, they sometimes touch the ground where moisture and bugs can get access to them, causing damage and rot. Some kind of mulch (like fresh straw) will keep the berries off the bare soil.
There are June-bearing varieties and ever-bearing varieties. It seems as though the June-bearing might be best for our climate as our summers are too hot for the ever-bearing.
Here is a link to an article from Utah State University Extension about growing strawberries.
