When wintering carrots in the ground, is there a concern with moles eating the carrots? This summer we have had a few moles in the garden. Wintering the carrots in the ground is something we would like to try this year but have concern over the moles. Will they end up eating them up?

Rodents are a concern when wintering over the carrots. I have known mice to nest and eat the crops.
Moles do not hibernate, so if you do have a mole issue, they will still likely look for food sources in the winter garden.
