Mynx, as has been mentioned, brassicas need good rich soil and plenty of light. Dig some well rotted manure into the ground this autumn and when you plant out the young cabbages etc next spring, plant them deep, right up to the bottom leaves and firm them in. They always need more space than you think. Feed with something containing plenty of nitrogen such as nettle feed or chicken manure pellets.
No need to do anything with the strawberries now other than give them a bit of a feed. Next spring when they start growing again, remove all of the old dead leaves, feed them with a bit of fish, blood and bone sprinkled over the soil around them and gently worked in with a hand fork. When they start flowering, feed them with a liquid feed such as tomato feed or seaweed feed.
