Dan's Garden: Blossom End Rot

Posted: Updated:

This week, we're in the community gardens where our hunger garden is.  A lot of people don't have many things ripe yet. But some people have been bringing in samples of tomatoes where they rot on the bottom of the tomato.

It's blossom-end rot caused by uneven watering, cultivating too close, root injury or lack of gypsum. You can get rot-stop and gypsum. I like to add gypsum to my garden every year.

It's not too late to fertilize your nursery stock. I use 10, 10, 10.

Some people have grassy weeds growing. You can spray some products on them.     

Last week, I said I'd talk about some new shrubs, but I'm saving that 'until next week.

Until then, good gardening.
