You can't plant outside yet, but winter sowing is a good substitute. Seeds can be started outdoors in plastic containers now. This is especially good for seeds that need a cold period to germinate. For details just Google "winter sowing."
www.Wintersown.org is a good site to get seeds for winter sowing. They will send you six packets of free seeds for a self-addressed business size envelope with two first class stamps.
