Here goes the southerner again...... Get used to their being months ahead of us. Enjoy your time here.Here on the Gulf Coast I'm now enjoying beets, turnips, spinach. lettuce, kale, mustard greens, collard greens, and chard. Hopefully my Brussels sprouts will reach harvest size soon, they are slow. Around March 1st I'll direct seed things like corn and beans plus transplant things like tomatoes and eggplant. That's why I said I can't help you on timing.
When I was in northwest Arkansas I'd start seeds indoors in February to transplant around the first of May. First of may is when I'd direct sow things like beans and corn. But I'd direct seed cool weather crops like beets, lettuce, carrots, peas, chard, kale, and potatoes in late February. plus transplant cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli. I'd have to cover those occasionally with sheets to protect against frost or freeing but it usually worked out. My frost and freeze norms there were probably different to yours.
