which seeds are best started indoors in Zone 5 in Colorado?

Asked February 28, 2013, 7:39 PM EST

I'm in Zone 5A/B (right on the line) in El Paso County Colorado. What sorts of general backyard garden plants would be best to start from seed indoors for transplanting outdoors in mid to late May?

Thank you.

For a vegetable garden:
onions can be started now, harden and set out in veg garden mid-April
cauliflower and broccoli can be started indoors mid March. Harden two weeks and set out late Apr
bell and chile peppers can be started (with bottom heat) mid-late March. Harden and set out late May.
tomatoes - start indoors early April (with bottom heat). Harden and set out mid-late May
