How can I get rid of creeping charlie that has invaded my wonderful strawberry patch!! I don't use chemicals. I'm not sure if Borax(great for killing creeping charlie) would be safe to inadvertantly ingest-- HeLP!!! Please don't suggest mulch, it won't do a darn thing.

Pull it. Too much borax/boron or any other mineral will cause changes in your strawberries. Another thing with this mineral is that it is an insecticide not a herbicide. If you have any earthworms or any bugs pollenating your strawberries or any other plant in your garden they will be killed by touching and cleaning their bodies. Some can ingest through their skins so just a touch is deadly.

And it takes an *extremely* small amount of borax to be *too* much.
