Carrots are a great crop for your garden. Not only are fresh carrots absolutely delicious, but they’re also easy to grow and easy to keep fresh. In fact, you can easily keep your garden carrots fresh all winter long, so you can enjoy them for months after harvesting. Want to know how?
1. Remove the Greens
After picking your carrots, it’s important to cut off the leafy tops. Why? Because those greens will actually suck moisture from the carrot, resulting in dried out, cracked carrots. Who wants to eat that? So cut off the leafy part, but you can leave a little piece of stem attached so you aren’t actually cutting the carrot’s flesh. Just get as close as you can without damaging the carrot itself.
