Nosebleed,
Seed is cheap and time is dear, but if you ARE rarin to go, then go man go. The problem with sowing early is germination and development. Plants develop by photosynthesis (google it you're a big boy) It's easy to provide warmth and moisture by synthetic means. But UV light which comes free in the longer days the other side of March is a whole new ballgame. What you might do is research all the things that can be planted in january, peas and beans being two. Peppers is pushing it a bit though. Tomato seeds are probably in already in heated houses in Rush but I doubt they are up even with flourescent lights.

Anyone from Rush on the forum?
