Still Have Tomato Problems

There is still no significant growth in my tomatoes in the tallest raised bed, and their coloring still leaves a lot to be desired.  

The Hillbilly is only about 5.5 inches high after a month.

The Oxheart is only about 5 inches. The Brandywine has grown to about 10 inches and the Japanese Truffle to about 11 inches. The other two are somewhere in between.

Tomatoes in the other beds or containers are about a foot at least and most are about 18 inches. These were planted at the same time or later. See right and compare to bed pictured at top. The mesh is to keep birds from eating a tiny seedling. The upside down strawberry basket is protecting a borage from birds until it's big enough to fend for itself.

I'm not sure what to do at this point except keep watching, watering, and hoping. I'll probably try mulching next.
