They were never this big in my Piedmont beds, which were amended, but obviously not as well as I thought!

I tried to be moderate and select an appropriate variety for the space that I have, and what we really like to eat- cherry (Sweet Million and Black Cherry), slicing tomatoes (a variety) as well as paste tomatoes (an improved San Marzano) for roasting and freezing. The peppers included an ancho and a Romano pepper which sounded like my favorite pizza peppers (which I would have grown from seed if I'd time). I may still do some peppers from seed (there's usually plenty of warm season growing time, even here in the mountains).
