Gardening Tip of the Day

  • Homegrown carrots are usually sweeter and juicier than those sold at the grocery store. But straight out of the ground, they lack the nutrition of the store-bought product. It takes two weeks of chilling for carrots to develop their maximum vitamin C content. So harvest carrots at their peak and refrigerate them for 14 days before eating. Cut off tops (they draw moisture out of the carrot), and store in zipper-type plastic bags to retain crunch and flavor. For long-term storage, layer carrots and damp sand in boxes and store in a dark, cool area such as a basement.
