It snowed all day yesterday.
It has taken me over a decade to welcome chilly snows to late in the season. With open arms, I can finally welcome the snowflakes. Good Lord, it helps to be a gardener (or skier) in this regard. The water not yet turned on in my community garden, my little seeds are largely dependent on mother nature's grace. As we all know deep down, there is nothing like snow and rain to really cause a sown seed to grow. There is something mysterious about the power of water that falls from the sky. Water. What we know is truly a drop. Have you seen this amazing documentary?
Anyway, it surely helps helps to have something planted, then. Which seeds are marked 'As soon as soil can be worked' under 'sowing' on the seed packet?
lettuces (with a few exceptions)
carrot (those not too quick to germinate)

*For attracting beneficial insects to the garden, at minimum.
