Tomatoes in the Garden

Here are some pictures of the tomatoes in my garden. The two sizable varieties I grew were Oregon Star for sauces and canning, and Mortgage Lifter as a slicing / sandwich tomato.

Here you can see the blossom end rot that is plaguing my tomatoes. It is caused by a calcium deficiency. I did recently fertilize with chelated calcium, so let’s hope that helps the green tomatoes that have yet to ripen.
