premature transplantation?

Tomato plant with new leavesThis past weekend I had to transplant the peas since they had grown too tall to continue without support.  However, it was too early to transplant the tomatoes. They were still tiny and weak.  I should have left them in the window for another week or two, but I went ahead and transplanted them.  I’m not sure why.  I’ve been concerned they wouldn’t survive so I was glad when I came home from work today and found they had started growing new leaves.  This weekend they only had two leaves each, now several have another set of small leaves.

I still don’t know for sure if they’ll pull through, but I’m hopeful.  If more than one or two tomatoes don’t survive, I’ll pull them all and plant new from seeds right in those pots.  It is important for the experiment to have nearly all healthy in the beginning.
