With so much information (and some a bit contradicting), I've come to this question:

In zone 6A, with temps spanning from 42F-70F this time of year, can I direct seed into raised beds -
tomatoes ?
chili peppers ?
basil ?
or is it still, too soon ?

I've had good experience with spinach for example, but I know it's more cold hardy than summer veggies.
Thank you.

It all depends on your soil temperature, not the ambient temps. The following pdf should be of use but you must have a soil thermometer.
