You can start off your tomatoes in a propagator now. You can start lettuce in pots (not propagator) peas and beans can also be started to be planted out when the weather improves - what part of the country are you in?

And  do you have a greenhouse?

Then hold off on the tomatoes until the end of March for outdoor growing and any other tender veg

Broad beans are fine now ,runners, french about Mid-may or so

Depends on what else you have in mind

Good advice from sotongeoff. Planting in a few weeks time if you have nowhere to keep all these seedlings frost free and they will soon catch up with earlier sowings with the extra day length and  (hopefully) warmth!
