We have done this and simply plant the seeds straight into  the soil,
generally on October though we have planted as late as November.If you try
to plant outside now the seeds will sit there until spring and you don't
get any advantage over starting indoors under lights. But starting the
previous fall should give you really big seedlings for spring planting
