I cut my plants back to about 3" high after the harvest. Do I also cut them back in the fall?

This is from another response to your same question-
"Cut back your June-bearing strawberries any time after they have finished fruiting. Cut back ever-bearing strawberries in early fall. Mowing them to about 3" high works if you do not damage the crown.
Followup question---After the regrowth from cutting it back do you leave the regrowth alone until the next growing season?
Answer---Yes - you do not need to keep cutting it back.
