Seeds

I live in Des Moines, Iowa. I think I'm zone 5. Is it too early to start my vegetable seeds? I'm thinking tomato, peas, lettuce (?), maybe onions, and peppers. Carrots I plant directly, I believe. I'm just getting really anxious, and I don't want to plant too late. I still have to order them, but I don't think that takes very long. I'm planning on getting them from the Seeds Savers Exchange, which is located about 4 hours away from me. But seriously, when the seeds do arrive, is it too early to start them indoors? Thanks!
