Blossom End Rot

Blossom End Rot is something that almost never affects the tomatoes in my garden, but seems to be fairly common when the tomatoes are planted elsewhere, like in my compost pile. It’s a condition often caused by a very well growing tomato plant find itself in the middle of a drought, whereby the plant can no longer shuffle water and nutrients from the soil to the growing tomatoes.

I found this tomato growing as a volunteer in my strawberry patch, where I have not been watering the plants during dry spells.I just wish this were the only tomato affliction I’ve had to worry about.
