Arugula seedlings in a petri dish

Yesterday morning I woke up to find the arugula seeds I've sprouted in a petri dish had started to push off their cover.  They are so big I might try sticking them in my garden, filter paper included.  

I have a soft spot for arugula because I grew it for my senior thesis project.  I love its spicy taste - which is totally different from hot mustard greens even though they are both in the Brassicaceae family.  I've been reading all about the brassica family's evolution.  It is just as complicated as any family tree, even though plants don't move.  It's fascinating, and you'll read all about it soon.
