What to plant now
According to Year-Round Edibles, here are some things that can be planted now; in a cold frame, cloche, or under row cover (how I started my lettuce last year). Once the ground reaches 45*, lettuce can be put in straight up. So, we have:
Lettuce and other greens
Fava beans and peas (esp. snow peas)
Beets! These are my favorite variety, called chioggia. They look like candy! Beets especially need some cover at this time in the season, but they can still grow. Good luck!
