Now that's interesting! When do you usually pull your pepper plants?

Both my peppers and sweets are planted around the last week in April or first week in May, weather depending. I usually dig my sweet potatoes in September and the peppers usually get pulled out around mid October. But next spring I could plant a sweet under one of the pepper plants on an end of the row and see what happens. Thanks for the input!
