Garden Tips

Have you ever made the mistake of leaving a carrot on the counter or putting it in the refrigerator without a cover on it? Within 24 hours you will find a limp carrot that has lost it’s crunch!  No one wants to eat a chewy carrot, so here are a few tips on how to store carrots.

We have been picking carrots from our garden most the summer, but some days the kids are a little excited an pick  too many.  If you leave a fresh carrot with the green top on it will make the carrot wilt.  The carrot is the root of the plant and the green tops take its  moisture and nutrition from the root.  So chop those green tops off right away.

At this point you can keep them with the dirt on and store them in cool sand or sawdust in a root cellar, or even a bucket in a cool dark place.  BUT since I do not have one of those… I just wash them up and keep them in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator.   If the carrots have to much moister they will mold, so I poke some holes in the bag to allow them to vent.  Carrots can stay firm, and crisp for months at a time when stored properly.
