That is the unmistakable flower of a Brassica plant. I would bet it is a Radish or other mustard.

This is one of the larger Brassica flowers. This is a garden variety.

This was growing near some strawberries at Sauvie Island Farms in Portland, Oregon. From the internet research I've done it seems like arugula or some other kind of rocket plant. Anybody know?
