A Second Round of Peppers

About a month ago, my first jalapeno and poblano plants both put out a very small batch of peppers, 2 or 3 each, and then stopped making peppers for a bit. I noticed increased growth in both height and foliage, but I wondered if something had caused them to skip making peppers after that first small run. I was pleased to find dozens of small pepper buds tonight when I went out to check on them, so it seems the delay was just a temporary one. I’ve read some people actually pull off the first run of peppers, as it focuses the plant on producing in greater numbers to replace those lost?
