Your plants sound like mine. I picked the first one on each plant and the peppers growing now are larger and growing faster. My bell plants are about two feet tall. My jalapino is over three feet tall.
I always have trouble with peppers. My tomato plants are huge, six to seven feet tall and a few are five feet wide.
It could be the shorter growing time and the cooler weather.
The constant rain and slugs hurt some plants.
I'd pick those slow pokes.
