My happiness however, was cut short when I began to notice the brown bottoms on the blossom end of my maters. What could it be? We were in a bit of an excessive heat spell with days reaching 100 to 105 degrees. Maybe that was the problem. But even with watering them, the little brown spots began to spread. It seemed that each tomato would reach a point and then the end began to shrivel. Errrrrrrr!
Luckily I am good friends with people who own a greenhouse.

OKAY, back to my story...
My Mom works at Glick's too, so whenever I have a question, I go right to Mom. If she can't answer, then I go to my friend Joe. So, I texted Joe a picture of the brown bottomed tomato and he was quick to reply with an accurate diagnosis of my tomato problem!
How to fix the problem? This product:

Anyway, I'm spreading the word, so that other senseless tomato deficiencies won't take the life of you tomato plants. Hope it helps!
