How do I grow a strawberry plant?

How do I care for my strawberry plant? It is hanging from my porch, so it is mostly in the shade. I water it every day, but the leaves are still turning brown.

Because you indicate that the strawberry plant is on your porch, I assume that it is growing in a container of some sort. It may well need watering every day in a container if the soil dries out that quickly. Less frequent watering is generally best, however, if the soil hasn't dried out. Strawberries will produce best growing in full sun. And unless it is an everbearing or day-neutral type, it will only fruit once per year.
