If you put pepper plants too close to the tomatoes, the peppers will not get enough sun and they will waste all their energy growing really tall to try and reach the sunlight instead of growing peppers. I've made that mistake a couple times. One year, I had yellow pepper plants that were 5 feet tall and very little peppers. They need to be at least 5 feet away from tomato plants and on the south side so they are not shaded.
