David teases me that I like some of our plants better than him, I get so attached to their progress! So last year when my tomatoes had a rather unfortunate case of blossom end rot (this is where the end of the tomato turns brown and starts to rot before it even gets a chance to ripen) I had a mild panic attack! lol...
There are several things that can cause blossom end rot: extreme transitions between drought and over watering, high heat, too much sun, or a calcium deficiency.
Despite our fancy soil, our problems seemed to be due to a calcium deficiency, so I bought some calcium rich worm poop! How much fun is it to go around telling people about your forays in worm poop purchasing?
Check out the TerraCycle website - they have tons of great stuff (highly recommend the tomato fertilizer!), and they have made a great business doing good things for the environment - making trash into treasure!
