Looks like they might be ready to pot up into bigger pots with richer compost. Then, later, they could go outside to harden off.

Agree with Ojibway93. The moment you will take out these plants from pot you will realise that they have outgrown the pot they were in.

It also looks like an iron or manganese deficiency, so you might want to look for a fertilizer with these elements.
