The sweet potato project

Remember when I mentioned this potato project? 
I showed lil'O the youtube video. 
He decided to recreate it for his school science fair.

We started with this.

We had 2 Organic sweet potato's (one from trader joe's and the other from whole foods) and one non-organic from the grocery store.

We put them into water.

Where they sat on Owen's dresser for 3 weeks.

The organic sweet potatos grew sprouts. 
{To be honest, the TJ's potato grew less sprouts. It had been sitting in my pantry for a few weeks.., perhaps this had something to do with it?}
The non-organic potato did not grow any.

My little scientist at the fair.
He had a lot of fun with this project.

We are planning to continue with this experiment..,
We'll let you know what happens!
