Can I Leave Wild Strawberry Plants in Vegetable Garden?

I have just raked my veggie garden out so that I can start planting soon. I discovered that under all those leaves and pine needles I have lots of wild strawberries growing. If I leave them and plant my veggies, will they bother the veggies at all? Or should I pull them out and make sure they stay out?

I don't see why not, on leaving them. As long as any other vegetable doesn't get crowded out by them or vice versa, you have some free food going there :).

They will take over everything and be very difficult to get rid of. I would stop them, now!
