The Sweet Potato Experiment

The first step was to get the potato to start making roots and shoots that we could later plant into soil. We just poked some tooth picks into it so it could sit in a glass of water.
After a few days a lot of roots and shoots started growing and growing.
Then we cut the shoots and put them in water as well so they had a chance to develop some roots.  We left the potato in water and shoots just keep coming and growing.
We finally planted the shoots in soil.

 Findus, our crazy cat decided that the poptato shoots are very tasty and ate half of them... good that our potato is still in the glass with water, producing shoots =)

as findus likes the shoots so much we build a small fence until we will find a better solution

growing and growing =)
