Year Four for my garden and finally! I have high hopes for my seedlings making it. But still.... a question

coll | May 3, 201507:00 PM

This spring I made a few changes in getting my seeds started: I started them much later than usual based on the terrible winter, and I used seed starter soil rather than potting soil; plus in addition to the old grow light, I put them right in the front window which is somewhat shaded most of the day yet a lot brighter than the old spot. With the added benefit I can just open and close the window to harden them off some days, instead of lugging them in and out. Anyway, whatever the reason, they are doing fantastically so far!

Only thing is, here on Long Island it's been unusually cool and I'm guessing at least another couple of weeks til they can go in the ground. (I did seed some other stuff directly outside a few weeks ago too, and have snow peas and Cascadia peas coming up nicely so far.)

I started everything in Chobani 5z yogurt cups, and although it may not look it in the photos, have been thinning the results weekly. My question is, is it normal to have to replant these babies in a bit bigger pot until the time is right? Or would that upset them too much? I've come this far and I'd hate to do something stupid at this point!
