Ugh... Blossom End Rot

Ughh.... Blossom end rot... Dang it!!! When I planted the tomatoes, I did just as Granny prescribed and put in ground up eggshells and a ground up aspirin tablet. I even amended this bed with peat moss...

UGH!

I checked all the tomatoes and these were the only two victims so far. The cherry tomatoes all seem to be fine. I just can't grow big tomatoes!!!

  1. I thought end rot was from some inconsistent watering???

    1. While inconsistent watering can contribute to the symptoms of BER, it is not the direct cause. Inconsistent watering will most likely lead to cracks in the skins of tomatoes. Here is a good article from OSU
