some buds or "eyes" forming

and plant the potato with the eyes
4. Cover the potato with the dirt,
stick your marker near the area
where you planted the potato and
water the area.
5. Continue to water the potato
every other day or so and keep watch
for it progress.
6. After a month or so you
will / should see the plant growing. Under the earth (in te ground) the roots have

Did you know that plants need water
to live? As well as absorbing
water from the atmosphere (air) through
their leaves (stomata), they suck water up through
their roots and stems.
