    Curious to see that myself. This is my first year growing peppers from seed. I started them about a week ago and so far they are looking good. My only problem is that I live in an apartment and have to grow them in large pots.

    Haven't tried it with peppers, but I did have some onion sets that made it through the winter, so I left them out. They are now up about 2 1/2 feet tall & looking great! (Of course, I am alot farther South than some of you guys.)
