How to grow the best strawberries?

I was inspired by Joony's post below, and her gorgeous picture of strawberries, to look for some strawberry tips. My strawberries are fruiting, but have yet to ripen. I have noticed that, like last year, many of my fruit have a slightly twisted look about them, and are rather small. Is there anything I can do to plump them out and make them bigger before they ripen? What are your best strawberry care tips? Cheers!
just for fun!
