Here's another thought

If you have just a few tomatoes that you are growing in containers.

At transplant time. Take an eggshell, dry and grind very fine, add to soil
1 per pot  Saves finding a place to store a bag of lime. 


Take a couple tums with calcium, grind up very fine, and add to soil.

Lime there are several types, One type is a calcium based another is 
magnisium based. Typicaly the calcium based is used on acidic soils
and the magnisium base is used on alkaline soils.
