    Thank You. I agree, we had extreme weather this spring. Tons of rain followed by no rain. It was the first time my tomatoes ever got blossom end rot.

    Wow, this is news to me. I have heard of Epson Salt for peppers but not tomatoes. Thank you. When you pinch off the lower branches do you also mulch, or does pinching do the trick for you?

    Your tomato success is exciting. I hope to have tomatoes by the weekend.

    Adding diluted fish emulsion is a brilliant update to a good idea. Thank you for sharing your ideas.

    Water is important. I agree. Mulching helps conserve that precious water. Thanks for your comment,Bubblegum Jones
