I have a new garden in north Florida. I transplanted tomatoes and two days later they started to wilt. I gave them a little plant food last night, and they look a little better this morning. They had a little water two days ago. Should I give them more water? My dirt has just been broke.

Water them about once a day for a week or so. They are trying to grow new roots and the extra water will help that. After a week, they should have enough roots to find water on their own.
They definitely need watering more often in the severe heat & temperatures we have in NE Fla. The 1st couple years of tomato growing here was struggle, primarily because I didn't water enough. Experience has been water twice per day with much peat mixed into the soil. I'm trying baby powder this year.
