  Yes Jason,
  If you care for your garden, you should spend some drops of sweat and cover 
them up !  On the other hand, it depends a bit on how far they are now. If 
they are just peeping out the earth, the problem is minor. Perhaps in a next 
cold period they could loose these first leaves, but they'll make new ones in 
(real) spring.  But it's no joy for them, and if you love plants, take care of 
them ! :-)
  Bye, marco
