Any ideas what could be causing it? Doesn't appear to be a bug or disease - the leaves look good except for the yellow color. Could it be an iron deficiency?

Are they the old leaves around the bottom? They just do that.

Might be iron...

Its all the leaves. Doesn't sound like any of the strawberry diseases I've read about. The plants look healthy, just the yellow color.

Is there a nursery nearby that you could take a leaf to, to get some help? I wish I could help you, but I don't know what to do.

Need to change my comment - the leaves are yellow with green veins. Normally I would have taken a leaf to my local Extension office, but their budget has been cut and they are short 3 employees. There is no one working there that know anything about plants!
I'll try to take a picture and post it later today

Sad about your Extension office. "Ironite" is for an iron, yellow problem. Should be at a garden center.

Hope this helps.
