    Lord, let me share this thought before my crs kicks in again. Blossom end rot is a major problem here. The tomatoes start to rot before they are any where near mature. BER is caused by a lack of calcium. The plants have to have a certain amount of calcium. I have used sprays and expensive stuff to try to prevent BER. A guy on another forum gave me this idea. When you dig the hole to put your tomato plant in, put a TUMS tablet in the bottom of the hole. TUMS are almost pure calcium. It will act like a time released pill.
    After I started doing that, I had no BER at all. Just take one tums per plant and put it in the hole and you are good. You won’t have any blossom end rot. It don’t get any better than that. Even expired tums will work.
