Since your winter weather is reasonably mild, you can plant your veggies outdoors now. Gradually acclimate them to the sunshine by setting them first in a shady area of the garden for a few days and then moving them into more and more sunshine. Or, plant them directly in your garden and shade them from the afternoon sunshine for a few days. Best wishes with your garden.
