We just bought some vacant land and there are tons of daffodils coming up. Should I transplant them to our home to replant now or wait until after they bloom?

If you want to save the daffodils, wait until the flowers fade and the leaves shrivel up before digging the bulbs. The foliage collects and transports carbohydrates to the bulbs for the energy they'll need to produce next year's flowers. Allow them to finish storing as much energy as possible by waiting until the leaves wither and die before digging the bulbs.
