Hi. I'm transplanting my peppers today. I've had to wait because its been cold here in Michigan. My bell peppers look healthy although a little leggy. With the tomatoes I just buried the stem all the way up to the leaves because they'll root out of the stem and become stronger. With the peppers, though, should I bury to the same depth they are at now and put a stake next to them for support?
