My husband came into the kitchen the other day, and said, "Honey, you have to see what's going on in the garden!" The first thing I thought was, oh no, not the bugs again! Nope, this is just as bad! Look at all of our tomatoes that have blossom end rot!
I googled what could be causing this. The 2 main reasons were moisture stress or lack of calcium in the soil. I suspect that it's the uneven watering of the garden. It has barely rained in 2 weeks and it's been in the 90s and 100s. Sigh....
A friend of ours also suggested that we add some crushed eggshells to the soil to add calcium. We'll try that to see if it works. Luckily, there are some fruit with no rot, so hopefully all is not lost. :(
Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this?
