What I thought was a random vine going through my strawberries seems to actually be a part of my strawberries. Can anyone identify what is happening here?

That's bindweed. Follow the vine to where it's coming out of the ground and get rid of it. It can be a pretty noxious weed.

Thank you for the prompt reply! I found the root and dug it out. It was sneakily wrapped around my strawberries.
