Need help settling a argument a coworker of mine planted pepper plants around June 6th and they are only 4 inches high. They were transplant  they are not growing much he wants to pull them out and put new ones in.The weather hasn't been consistently warm during the day or at night, I say leave once it gets steady warmer temps they will grow.

Leave them.  They need hot.  And is he doing SFG?  If not, hit them with some good fertilizer!

Leave them. He may not have a nutritious growing medium or the cold has kept them small. As long as they are not diseased, it's too early to throw in the towel If it's the growing medium, maybe a half dose of Espoma Garden-tone. ??

Leave them and plant new ones, too. Just to compare in the end.

He's doing sfg Sanderson you mentioned espoma garden tone is the same as tomato-tone or would bone or blood meal work how would he go about applying it.his plants need help about 4 inches high peppers look like they are trying to grow.weather rain every other day temp in 60's would putting landscape fabric between the rows help to get heat to the roots,if it keeps raining worried about plants dying because they are so wet thanks

I think those peppers need more heat. They won't do much until the soil temp and the air temp are in the low 70's.Try this: 

http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Garden-Hot-Caps-from-Used-Milk-Jugs.

Keep an eye on them during early afternoon- if they are drooping, just cover them at night. Also they are full sun lovers, so be sure they are in a south facing exposure. My peppers get full sun, the soil is covered with two layers of burlap cloth to maintain soil temp and moisture, and they don't do much growing until the night temps are in the high 60's and daytime temps in mid 70's.

Blue, It is sounding like the weather is not cooperating. For a veggie plant to uptake minerals the soil needs to be warm. All the nutrition applied will not be taken up unless there is warmth. For organic gardening, there also needs to be an active microorganism population. Check out the link that Yardslave provided.

Espoma has several pre-mixed, slow-release XX-tones like Garden-tone, Tomato-tone, Citrus-tone, Tree-tone, etc. Used per instructions they should not hurt the microbes. Using traditional fertilizers is harsh on the microbes.
