KNOWS HIS PEPPERS: Michael J. Lacivita, 84, shows off his crop of Italian sweet peppers grown in containers at his Youngstown home. He’s been gardening most of his life and growing the peppers for 15 years. He’s also won awards for his efforts. This crop is 6 feet tall, and he expects they will pass the 7-foot mark.
