This is angular leaf spot, a bacterial disease that infects the leaves of strawberries.  There are other species of angular leaf spot that can infect other crops as well.  Angular leaf spot spreads most commonly by splashing water and is more prevalent in warm humid conditions.  Hot dry conditions slow the spread, though copper containing sprays are sometimes necessary if warm, humid conditions persist.  Take a look at this page from the Southern Regional Small Fruits Consortium for more photos and info.

Here is this week’s question:  What is the white thing hanging from this strawberry leaf?
