Hello I'm new here and have multiple questions about my cherry tomato plant I have had a pest nibble the seed leafs of my plant what could this be from? Are they still okay considering the true tomato leafs are forming? Would it be better To transplant them into my raised garden? Thank you.

Welcome! @Gardenerr21 Hi Ryan. It would be difficult to say exactly what might have nibbled your plant.

This link shows the first and last frost dates for your area. I think you are just past that last frost date, so as soon as the first true leaves are open, you certainly can transplant to your raised bed.

Once transplanted, you can safely treat insects with insecticidal soap.

A recipe for insecticidal soap, kills pests non toxic to humans and pets.
