A little girl decided to do an experiment with a sweet potato, and her results will change the way you think about the fruits and vegetables you buy at the grocery store. Most of us have "grown" sweet potato vines in a glass of water, watch this.

Yep, factory farming includes treating plants so they won't sprout...Organic sweet potatoes will sprout and grow leaves

They've even found a way to poison the produce that we thought was healthy for us.

Hooley Dooley! It goes to show what a difference the growing conditions make. Labeling something "organic" doesn't make it healthy or vital, you have to go to the source. Shop local, know your growers and eat truly health filled food! Thank you!

Cute a budding scientist in the making no doubt.While at school in the 1950s we were taught at science class to experiment with various plants to see what could be grown in water alone.I would place a little water in a glass and place a piece of blotting paper down the side of the glass just touching the water and place a French bean behind the blotting paper and place the glass in a dark place.Hey presto I could grow French beans without the aid of pesticides or any kind of fertilizer.
