Nice problem to have. I love tomatoes. Tried for so many years to grow them here but we always got blossom end rot. Sucked to work so hard all summer and get few (if any) tomatoes. I think it's because we have a water softener so they have a calcium deficiency. At least that's what Google says.

I swore off trying to grow them years ago, but our son's friend gave us two seedlings about a month ago. Planted them on July 1st they were maybe 2 inches tall now they're over 4 feet. They grew so fast they flopped over. I was finally able to get some 4' bamboo stakes and prop them up yesterday.

I used a mortar and pestle to crush up tons of egg shells and put them in the soil so I am hoping to get some good tomatoes. If this doesn't work I will never try again.
