So, today we’re gonna talk about tomatoes… Great info for tomato gardening!
@TheRealTrojanGoat … I didnt get to edit the video myself- and so, that explanation was cut out (for time limits).. Experienced gardeners (like yourself) know the more scientific definition of determinate and indeterminate.. & The way I explained it seems easier for the casual gardener- as a way to remember the difference between indeterminate and determinate when purchasing plants… Thanks for the excellent comment and Blessings from my garden!

Although you are quite correct in much of the video I think you might have inadvertently neglected to mention that indeterminate plants produce their fruit at different times while determinates produce all their fruit at once.

I have just planted my tomatoes plants. Is it too late to add lime to the soil. What kind of lime should I add. We have a Lowe’s nearby.

Tomatoes and cilantro are the most difficult plants to keep alive in Florida personal gardening..I think tomatoes need to stay constantly watered,which is impossible without irrigation system.

I love all your videos. I am having trouble with my tomatoes so this should be helpful. I live in GA as well and going without rain is getting really hard on my plants.

Great video!! Thanks for posting!! Blight got our big boy tomatoes last year. It was disappointing. Those little fellas bloomed, fruited and started to die. Our Romas (a couple rows away) made it just fine. So we still got to enjoy some homegrown tomatoes. You are very knowlegable about gardens, Youve earned a subscriber.

Cb1967, your explanation for the cause of blossom end rot is not quite there yet. Your stated cure will not work unless the following are in alignment: adequate calcium present in the soil in a form available to the plants and correct Ph of 6.5; If it isn’t available in the soil it will not mater how you water them. Root cause is what is most important. The plant will take up all of the calcium it needs as fast as it needs it if it is present in an available form. TheGardenMaster com

Hi Melissa, Have you thought of looking at more current sustainable growing which allows you to grow year-round regardless of where you live? How about lowering overhead and producing your current production on one tenth the acreage. Not till, no weeds, no expensive equipment and bountiful harvest! I speak from forty years of commercial experience. Come visit us! I look forward to seeing you! The Garden Master and his Bucket Garden. TheGardenMaster com

Blossom end rot is not a problem within the tomato. Cb1967 is correct that it is a deficiency of calcium as well as magnesium but it is because of the soil where the tomatoe is getting its nutrients. If your soil is lacking nutrients or fertilizer and very low calcium then end rot is the result but it is not inside the fruits itself. Erratic watering does not cause Blossom end rot. Erratic watering causes the tomatoes to split down the sides, not end rot.

I thought there was only one type of person in the south: the ones that lost the war. Maybe I’m wrong though.
