Question:

Once the seeds are sprouting do you remove the tops off the jugs or leave them till you plant the seedlings in the garden?

Molly, just leave them on while there's still frosty nights. You can cut vents into the containers if they're warming too much during sunny days. Once either chance of frost has passed or the seedlings get too big, you can cut the top off then.

After germination is pretty good, I usually flip the top open at the hinge but leave it attached. In case of late frost, it's easy to flip closed and cover up overnight.

Neal no frost here! Most of our nights now are in the 40's with occasional ventures into the 50's. Only had one cold night this past week when it dipped to 37 but no frost at all.

I know you're stating fact, Molly, but some of us could interpret that statement as rubbing salt in our wounds. It supposed to snow here tonight, with 29°. Crying Glad I don't have any tender sprouts yet. I have good reason to wait to sow my tender stuff until later.

Good for you, Molly! Its warming up more every day here, I'm ready to be in the sun! The warmth held in the jugs is still good for the seedlings, as long as its not getting too warm. If they're getting too warm, they dry out quickly, so if they're staying nice and moist and the babies look good, you may want to leave them on. Opening them as Karen suggested is a good way to go.

Sorry Karen Hilarious! I lived all my life in zones 4 and 5 so I sympathize. I'm fascinated by spring arriving this early and I'm told this has been a weird year and spring is almost a month late! They do tell me that there can be unexpected late bad weather that can ruin bloom but nothing that kills plants off.
I've already started planting out my daylily seedlings which back in NY I wouldn't have done for another two months!!
I'm still trying to get use to seeing cactus and palms planted right in the ground!!! Hilarious!
