We’ve had an unusually long winter weather that sort of shortened spring and delayed the growing season.
Some starts developed leaves with purple veins and overall purplish tint due to cooler temperatures. In this case, it may just be phosphorus deficiency which can be easily remedied.
These lower leaves will be removed before planting, and only top leaves will show when planted deep. Bury a tomato plant’s stem and the stem will sprout a slew of new roots that help the plant grow sturdy and tall quickly.
