For the inner-city farmer who tends a small yard or parking strip, North Capitol Hill carrots are the perfect space-saving crop. Like the skyscrapers in the neighborhood for which they are named, these root vegetables grow vertically for maximum profitability... Fortunately for the urban farmer, carrots grow below the soil, where they remain hidden from roving hordes of dieting office workers who roam the streets at lunchtime.
Direct sow North Capitol Hill carrot seeds every two weeks during mid-summer and mulch to keep ground from freezing to pull these sugary-sweet street treats all winter.
