I agree they are easy to start from seed
....But if I lived where plantgirl lives....I would keep the pepperplant going as long as possible, I'd do like Triss said prune out some of the branches...I would also prune out the inside stems...to open up the plant
to better air circulation (you know shape it like you would a Jade)Leaving all the main sturdy stems and a few branches off of them.

Oh one more thing plantgirl....Be sure if you here that the weather is going to get too cold for your pepper plant
(Oh and you should name it) That you go out and make a tent over your plant
...something like a blanket would work good, just don't let what ever you cover it up with touch the plant
. And be sure to keep us up to date how your plant
is doing, if you give it a name and we would love to see a picture of it.
