I think the ones on the left look most like Ruby Chard ... but they both need similar growing conditions and you can eat the leaves of both so no real problem ........... you'll know which ones are  beetroot eventually when the roots swell

CAN I save my tomatoes?

I would pick them and bring them indoors and place them on a warm windowsill or similar place ... that's what I do in those circumstances and most of them ripen.  

Ones that stubbornly remain green get turned into chutney.
