Starting from seeds in Florida

I've done a lot of reading, and a lot of comments are to use your basement. Well we don't have that in Florida! We can start our seeds now since our last frost date is sometime in March (depending where you are). I got a small greenhouse from Harbor Freight for Christmas and that is on my back patio. I've started my tomato seeds last month and they are doing OK. These are inside, on a table in front of a window.

When do I put the seedlings in the greenhouse? Right now they are in the small peat pots and I will transplant those into larger pots when they are ready.

This is my 3rd year of gardening. First year, terrible, 2nd year successful, 3rd year much bigger and trying to start from seed! This is adicting.

Any advice would be appreciated.
