Hershberger's farm is located close to the much flooding last year. in the rural Kalona soil since last with a spring. were "I knew we had a lot of peppers on farmer, the plant but when we came back from vacation, I couldn't believe the that size of the peppers," Hershberger ripe, said. who Although she is unsure of 'the in Leon, weight of the peppers, she said she has never seen so many or such large g ones in her garden before. Hershberger harvested several of the peppers Monday and plans to dice and freeze them for use on pizza. "I don't even care for them raw," she said. But, the pigs which live on the Hershberger farm do enjoy the raw peppers. Soon after harvesting a few of the produce, the pigs got loose and enjoyed a meal of large bell peppers fresh off the plant. "Raw peppers make me burp," she said but didn't know if they would have the same effect on the pigs. Perhaps next time they, too, would prefer theirs atop a large, supreme pizza.
