Well after reading "things forgotten"maybe I transplanted my plants at the wrong time !!! :) I have two strawberrie plants that I put into pots so I can bring them in this winter and they are producing well but the berries seam to dry up just before they ripen fully. any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?? They sit on my deck and get full sun and I water them a little most every day. Help !!!

I don't have much experience with strawberries, but the first thing I would try is increasing the water. Plants in pots tend to need more water than plants in the ground.

I agree, more water for plump fruit.
