The easiest way to start your garden early is to germinate the seeds indoors, which has a number of benefits. For starters, you could have those vegetables slightly earlier in the season. And nursing a garden indoors early can mean seeds sprout without the threat of being eaten by wildlife. You can also save money by just buying the seeds, rather than pre-grown plants, for your garden. And you can sprout multiple seeds to see which grow the best and transplant those outside, making for a hardier garden.
