We have a lot of orchards with peach trees around here, -10f is the lowest temperature for are area. Painting the trunks white is vital practice apparently, it prevents spliting in the winter due to the sun heating the frozen trunk. Have you tried mounding straw over the strawberries to act like a blanket? The covered section has to be much wider than the patches to keep the cold from creeping in the sides.
