Gladiolus sprouting

I've grown glads for years but never at this new property. It took all Summer to get some landscaping done and I wanted to wait until it was completed to plant the glads. We slid in to the Fall season and it was starting to get chilly out so I just decided to plant them a month ago (October; I live in Northern Virginia), figuring they'd just sprout next year. I should also say that I always leave glads in the ground and only dig them up about every 3 years to harvest the 'babies'. Well - these things are sprouting right now (November 4). Any suggestions? Rescue them? Let them go?

I would leave them alone, but give them some extra mulch. Bulbs are tough. Chances are good they will be fine.
