|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.

| @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.

|Hi everyone. Great to be on the forum.
I grow and give way tomatoes to about 20 people each year. I'm worried about this year's crop which have been growing under lights in my basement. It's been cool and they probably have been a little too damp at times.
I know the purple means potassium deficient. But they are also getting thin papery leaves with pock marks on top. The leaves curl and the lower branches die and fall off. The underside is scabby. Here are some pictures:
Any help you might offer would be very much appreciated.
Is it a bacterial infection?

|Good Morning @FrankJD Welcome to NGA.
I am not very adept at recognizing tomato problems, but these links have pictures to show various diseases and can help determine what is wrong.
I hope this is of use to you.
