Great. now there's this. Some sort of disease that messes with the genetics?? oy.
These are the first strawberries out of my 'store bought' section. Searching around, it seems it's something called phyllody or at least it's connected to that. I'm going to have to go out and destroy those plants, and hope it doesn't get into the others, or worse, get into the wild strawberries up here. Apparently bacteria transmitted by bugs crawling around. if it's not one thing it's another.
