	We have successfully stored beets for months in a walk-in 
cooler. We use the same method we have used for years with 
carrots. Trim the beets leaving 1/4-1/2 inch  stems attached. Don't 
trim the roots. This prevents the color from leaking out when the 
beets are cooked. Wash the beets and drain them. Store them in 
perforated plastic bags. We lay the bags on the ground before use 
and puncture them with a knife (quick and dirty!). Tie the tops of the 
bags. They store very well.
