A Sweet Potato Experiment: Why Go Organic?

Sure, some of you scientific GeekMoms out there may quibble with the science (what, in fact, did happen with that “wimpy” sweet potato?) but this little girl’s science experiment – and her exchange with the produce clerk – has certainly made her aware of the concerns many people have about the safety of the food we buy. I love that she’s digging in and asking questions about things like chlorpropham and making YouTube viewers aware that such a product even exists. Which potato would you rather eat?
