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.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
