Great look crop Linda. My first few tomatoes suffered from bottom end rot but considering all the rain we had. Producing now but plants look more like September than August ....

Thanks BW. My first few had Blossom End Rot too. They rest are forming quite nicely! Yes the rain probably was the cause of that!
