Not if you hurry and keep an eye on the temperatures. I planted 3
different kinds a few weeks ago in the greenhouse and they are doing
well. We heat it to just stay above freezing in the winter.

NC Ag extension recommends growing lettuce from transplants rather than
directly from seed.
Wally World, Lowes, and Homewood nursery all have 4 and 9 packs
of young plants.

And if you're feeling moderately evil, grab a flat of broccoli
to see if there are any groundhogs nearby.

Explain the groundhog thing? I may be feeling evil but I want to know
what I am getting into.

I planted brocolli, lettuce, and cabbage and then
discovered a groundhog had setup residence with a burrow entrance
in my garden.
I should have figured out something was up when it looked like
someone had applied a lawnmower to my bush beans. But I had
grasshoppers and figured they were to blame.
The broccoli were eradicated overnight.
The lettuce, with deer block, was eradicated about a week later.
The cabbage remained untouched.

For a more entertaining explanation of a similar situation.
