. . . . . . . and some other stuff too.
i think you need calcium in your tomato dirt. grind up egg shells and add them and some epsom salts too. my hornworms can eat your with their hands tied behind their backs. mine were 4 inches long and as fat as a cigar. my peppers suck and i am just getting my first okra. lots of tomatoes though.
Thank Jaz, I'll try that. Is there anything other than that one can do to prevent the cankers? seem the tomatoes are moldy on those spots. But that may have happened after the cankers developed.
OK according to http://tennesseetomtomatoes.com/tomatodisease.html what I have is "tomato blossom end rot" and it claims in addition to lack of calcium it can be caused by irregular watering. I do give about 3/4 of a gallon of water twice a day, I do hit them with Miracle Grow about every other week (1 table spoon in 2 gallons of water) So perhaps I will try a bit of calcium supplement.
Que lástima! Pero debes ver la parte positiva: Deja que los gusanos engorden, son casi todo proteínas y alimentados con un vegetal -cuestión de cambiar ensalada de tomates por gusanos fritos.
No Dougie, yo no como gusanos!!! ha ha ha
It looks like blossom end rot that can be caused by irregular watering or the pots not being able to hold enough water between waterings (if that makes sense). i used buckets this year (tax deductible) so they can hold plenty of water and it seems to be working so far.
He Kev, not sure what it could be, they get an awful lot of sun on the deck with the reflection from white wall of he garage. On several occasions I came home to find them a bit wilted despite having given them lots of water in the morning. So It could be that. I did hit them with a solution of lime juts in case they needed calcium and magnesium as per this guys recommendation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0febDi7iakI did just rearrange my woodshed and glassed the one exposed side so that I can use it as a bit of a greenhouse and perhaps they will be a bit more protected in there. Will put some photos up soon.
