Default Late start

I started my rhizomes way to late to get any kind of harvest this year I know, but I need some advice about weather to unearth a couple to check for growth.
The Chinook and Wilmette that I got from lhbs on 6/13 are growing nicely and I have no problems with them.
The Golding's that I ordered from Freshops and planted on 6/20 still have not broke ground and I need to know weather I should gently unearth them to check for growth or weather I should just leave them alone.
Thanks in advance.

I would leave them another week or so before checking. My Willamette didn't break ground for 3 weeks.

I'd give them at least a month before you start worrying. I had some that sprouted within a few days, and a Saaz that took five weeks or so to break ground.
