Blossom end rot fix (?) For tomatoes

Recommended Posts

I have always had problems with blossom end rot, due to calcium deficiency,  in my tomatoes,  even after mixing eggshells into the potting mix and spraying with calcium supplement.  I tried something weird this season. In late spring,  I  tried covering about 2 dozen eggshells in a quart of cider vinegar, and leaving them, with occasional "burping", the container to vent CO2. Eventually, only the inner soft shell lining remained, and pH was close to 7. Strained, and diluted 3:1  and gave plants a 1 cup soil drench 1x week.  So far, great crop of big girls and cherry tomatoes,  with no blossom end rot. It might work :)
