Why Won't They Sprout?

A little girl decided to do an experiment with a sweet potato.

Elise wanted to see vines grow from the potato, but after trying twice for three weeks each, she figured something was wrong.

Indeed, the conventionally grown potatoes were unable to behave like potatoes.

She went and got an organic potato. Watch out! The thing sprouted as big as a houseplant in a week!

She learned, and teaches us here, about the toxic chemical Bud Nip that ruined her first two potatoes...and much of the rest of our non-organic food supply.
