Will it produce fruit this summer?

I'm not in nearly as far South as you are, but I just harvested two perfect strawberries yesterday. I would definitly put them somewhere they have ROOM. Our runners have "granddaughters", and they're sprouting again!
Honestly I'm not quite sure what to do. Can I clip them and plant the new roots. (not all are rooted) But here is my 'problem' Last night dh and I agreed 100% (FINALLY!!) on changing the garden. We're going to containers, and that means I need to pull it all up.
So do I need to wait to pull them up or can I do that at any time? I know I risk shocking them, but I want them to be able to hibernate. Also...can I leave my containers out all winter, or will they need somewhere more protected? If so, we have a shed, no heat, but 4 walls. I can probably move them in there if I have to.
I guess I have a good bit of research to do!
See, my tomatoes are just in pots this year, and I love it. I can move them, spin them, and protect them when the weather gets bad.
Ack, the kids are ready to go, gotta cut this short.
