Yes, they’ve already started. I got Pinetree Garden Seeds and Thompson & Morgan before Thanksgiving. Today it was McClure & Zimmerman, Seymour’s Selected Seeds, Totally Tomatoes, and Vermont Bean Seed Company. I believe they are all owned by the Jung Seed Company, which also seems to own Roots & Rhizomes, Horticultural Products and Services, and R.H. Shumway’s Seeds, if the contact addresses are any indication. And who knows? Jung might own others as well.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.
