Hi, this year for the first time, we are experiencing a number of
tomatoes, Burpee's Early Girl and Big Girl, developing soft bottoms that
turn black and slightly flattenend, most of which fruit cannot be
salvaged. We carefully dipose of it in the trash so as not to infect our
compost pile. Any clues as to cause/cure?
