Still trying to figure out how to fix this blossom end rot problem. Some of the tomatoes are even beginning to ripen, but much of the early fruit comes out with a big sad spot where the blossom was. I’m blaming the plentiful rain that we have had this spring and am hoping that I can stop this from happening to the later fruit. I think that the PatioF is the worst offender, so it may be on the chopping block for next year. We shall see.
Meanwhile, every day that I come home and it hasn’t been raining, they are all very thirsty and wilted. I think they need more frequent water because they are in containers rather than in the ground, even though they are mulched.
