Planted pepper seeds outside in the garden. It's been three weeks and they're not coming up. Should I disregard them and plant something else in their place?

Depending on the variety, you may see your first sprouts in about 7-14 days, but some peppers can take as long as a month or more to come up. Pepper seeds are notorious for taking their time to germinate, or germinating at different times. Also, peppers won't even attempt to sprout if temperatures are below 60 degrees F. So don't give up!
