Should I move my potted vegetable plants to catch the morning sun?

I have a cherry tomato plant and a few pepper plants (scotch bonnets and jalapenos) in pots in a window that faces due west - they get bright shade until about 3 pm, and then hot, direct sun until about 6:30 pm. Should I move them to the front garden (facing south) in the mornings?

They seem healthy and happy - the tomato is starting to set flower buds and the peppers are growing like crazy. I'm home all day, so should I carry them out front to catch the morning and early afternoon sun, or is it better to leave them alone? Here's a blurry picture!
Bonus question - will a good, regular tomato fertiliser make up for slightly-too-small pots?
