|I started tomato plants from seed. They reached a point where they weren't getting any bigger so I hardened them off outside over a few days and decided to plant them out in my raised bed. They've been there for about five days and I'm concerned they won't do well. I noticed no growth and some of the leaves are going light green. How do they look? Should I just be patient?

They are getting sunburned. If you are overhead watering when the sun is up, the result could be sunburn. If you didn't harden them off well enough, that also will cause sunburn. If the latter, the new leaves will be fine but if the leaves are getting wet when the sun is out, the new leaves will burn also.
Don't fertilize until you get a handle on this problem. And if you fertilized and then the leaves started showing these symptoms, that's a different kind of burn.
