my tomatos are ripening but they have a rotten spot on the bottom. I live in the desert south west.

Sounds like blossom end rot to me.

This is most likely caused by a calcium deficiency or uneven watering. I would try using an additive like liqui-cal or add gypsum to the soil to correct this problem. Don't over water...

You can add the extra calcium by buying commercial stuff; or save up eggshells, crush them and put in a bowl. Add some boiling water and when cool water the tomato plants. The shells are still good for mixing in the soil too.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
