I live in St. Louis. I planted 2 better boy tomato plants about 1 week or 2 ago (purchased at the store). First, the leaves on one plant turned brown and wilted and now the other is beginning too. I am a very beginner and have no idea how to rescue the plant or the next best step?

Do I pull it out try again or can I save it? The weather has been unseasonably warm (march and april in the 70's), and the man in the garden section at Lowes said I should have no problem this year starting prior to the traditional calendar frost?

So, I created a raised garden bed 3 or 4 weeks ago. I put soil and compost in it. Let it sit about a week or two. Then about a week and a half ago I planted two better boy plants. Now, my two plants look sad!

It did rainy very heavy 2-3 days in a row and got in the 50's?? Any advice appreciated!
