My folks left them in the ground, then dug a pound or 2 when they wanted fresh carrots. As I recall, dad would throw some old boards, lawn clippings or whatever to protect the row if it was going to be a hard winter. There were always a few weeks when the garden was covered with frozen slush that we couldn't dig, but dry snow or new snow was easy to sweep or shovel off the row & the the ground wasn't frozen underneath. I wonder if bales of straw would work or bags of mulch? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Donna" <gossiper@sbcglobal.net>

I have a zillion carrots here. I dug up about a 3rd of them and already have 3 shopping bags full. I wish the darn shelters/pantries around here would take
fresh veggies, but they don't.

I plan on trying to freeze some for stews and cooking etc, but how can I do what ever the groceries store do.....keep them fresh for munching for months?
Anyone know?
