this is my first try at growing carrots and they are doing good but when I pull them up and take them in the house the next day they are soft.
is there something I am doing wrong , should they be refrigerated wright away?

They use that "intermittent misting" system -- I always seem to have the bad luck of reaching for a clump of broccoli or whatever and manage to get a shower along with it. I'm pretty sure you could put a clump of carrots with tops in a vase of water in the fridge and they'd keep just fine!
