You have a "frost-risky" location ~ if that's a word
How about giving Richters Herbs
a try? "Please note: Potted plants are shipped April to November, weather permitting."
I have been pleased with plants I have bought from them and they may not be shipping very far from your location. You have used "Veggie Plants" in your post but maybe some creative thinking and some shared ideas with the Richters person on the telephone would work for you. I clicked peppers, tomatoes and kale - they do say the plug packs are "sold out" but there is still a price for a /each.
