Are you starting seed indoors under lights? Then figure out when your average last frost date is (you can look it up if you don't know) and count back about 10 -12 weeks from that. According to this:

your average last frost date is the same as mine April 15.
However... I did some looking. If this is right

You don't get real cold, but also very slow to get warm. You aren't hitting night time temps above 50 until well in to May. My winters are a lot colder, but I am having night time temps above 50 in late April.
At transplant time, you will want plants that are 6 - 10 weeks old, soil temperature at least 65, night time temps above 50.
So even though you have the same average last frost date as me, you might want to slow the process down a little, lean towards 8 -10 weeks back instead of 10-12. So early to mid Feb sounds good to me. Best is always to ask around and see what people where you are do...
