I planted my peppers in the spring and they didn’t produce much all spring or summer. I was about to pull them up and plant some lettuce for the fall when all of a sudden they started producing. This is my first year in South Carolina (zone 8A) . It's much warmer here than where I used to live and I’m still trying to figure things out. Any ideas as to what is going on?

Don't pull them yet. The best production for my peppers is usually in the fall when temps begin to back off some.

My Jalapeños are just getting their second wind. I think this second crop is going to be larger than the early crop. Some of the better plants I am going to move to the garage to see if I can overwinter them.

Given they can live as much as 5 yard and still produce and your warm climate I'd leave them come September or so they should be in full swing . If small enough a bucket will protect them from chance of over nite frost . A trick originally done with a glass bell and the origin of the phrase " saved by the bell "
