Strawberry plant invasion?

I have a few strawberry plants growing in a container, none of which have produced fruit yet. When watering this week, I noticed this strange plant growing in there as well...

The leaves are noticibly different from the strawberries around it, but unline anything else in my garden! I can't tell if its supposed to be there or what I should do about it!

Here is a pic of the container:

Here is a closeup of the possible "invader":

Any suggetions or insights?

Most of us get weeds in our containers. The good part is that they are easily pulled out, if done before they are allowed to take over. Al

Al,
Is this a weed? I am not sure how to tell :)

There are many sites on your computer that will picture weeds, if it is important for you to know its name. In a container if you did not plant it there, it is a weed, and the sooner removed the better. Al
