Why don't you just keep the peppers in pots all year, that way they are easier to bring indoors? 4 gallon pots for the longer lived peppers but smaller peppers can be kept in 2 gallons for a couple of years.
I am trying to figure out right now if it is a good time to start lettuce seeds. I want them to be ready to transplant out about the second week of February. Should I start them now or wait another week? It is harder to time things since the cold slows everything down a lot.
I usually fertilize when I pot stuff up, but I don't know if it would be a good idea to fertilize now since things aren't really growing except the weeds. I have to repot a lot of plants and I usually fertilize them at the same time. I do use slow release fertilizer so maybe it won't be that big a deal. My day temps are around 78 degrees so it may be warm enough, although most of the plants won't be doing much growing until the days are longer. I did start some cabbages, kale, onion, chives, parsley,lemon balm, and hyssop. The seeds of the kale and cabbage are ready to up pot. Hyssop took a long time to germinate but it is finally up now.
Your orchids look good but could use some repotting I think. Most orchids need to be repotted every couple of years unless they are grown on rafts or media less. I am bad at repotting so I like to go with no media so there is nothing to decompose. The orchids I grow in media seem to do worse.
