In the baskets this week you’ll notice the first carrots of the season. We leave the tops on the carrots for a couple of reasons, the main one is that it allows us to use rubber bands on them instead of having to bag them. That helps us conserve our bags for the crops that really need them.

If you leave the tops on the carrots, they will leech moisture out of the carrot leaving it soft and rubbery. To prevent that, first thing you should do when you get them home is to cut or twist off the tops. Then you can run them under cold water, wrap them in a damp paper towel and put them in the fridge. That should keep them fresh and crispy for about a week.
