I am in zone 5a. We grew our various pepper and various tomato plants from seed. My husband kept them under grow lights until they were getting Just way too big for in the house and we put them outside/in a small greenhouse shelf unit for another 2 weeks to harden. We planted all of them by May 20th. Most of the plants have been putting on buds almost since day one in the garden – peppers and tomatoes. Of course, the plants aren’t quite big enough to hold fruit. Plus I want them to have optimum amount of production. How long do we need to keep pulling the buds off until they are really ready to produce for our zone?
