I’ve been hardening off my tomato plants and the other day it got so windy and now their bottom leaves are wilting. Do they still have a chance?

Yeah, it’s probably fine. The bottom leaves are the first to go in almost all situations. Just watch the growth on the rest of the plant. If it keeps growing fine then no biggie, which is what will likely happen. If it starts to stall though then you may want to consider a weak fertilizer solution to give it a kick in the butt.

The upper leaves have good color and appear to be in good shape. Your plant is going to be fine. I would cut the dead leaves off and repot it burying the trunk to a point just above the leaf position. I would then pinch off the top of the main stem to force it to divide.
