Blossom End Rot?!

Dreaded blossom end rot

Dreaded blossom end rot

Oh no!  I have discovered blossom end rot on 2 of my Patio F plants and one Tumbling Tom.  With some research it looks like this is due to a shortage of calcium to the plant because of period of heavy rain and then some dryness.  The solution: Mulching all the plants and spraying affected plants with calcium spray (purchased in a bottle at Lowe’s).  Hopefully we’ll have a good report next time.
