You can try the sand method of storing carrots. After harvesting, do not wash the carrots and trim the top to about 1 inch long. Allow them to air dry for 1-2 days in a cool, dry place. Gently brush off any dry soil but don't work so hard as to "clean" the carrots. They will still have some dirt. Then bury the carrots in moist (not overly wet) sand in a sealable container, like a large tupperware container. They can be stored anywhere that gets between 35F-40F for up to 6 months.
