Could a potato stay alive and power a clock while growing in the ground?

I know how a potato clock works as a electrochemical cell enter image description here and involves chemistry, but I am only interested in a growing plants ability to grow and recover lost compounds, water or otherwise during this process while in the ground.

enter image description here

Side question: How much power could come from one potato? enter image description here Source is in the picture.
