Brown Spots on the Blossom End of Tomatoes

Anonymous added on July 31, 2011 | Answered

I have tomato plants potted in 5 gallon pails. Some of the plants have tomatoes with brown spots on the blossom end, blossom rot? What can I do to stop this from continuing? Do I need to add some form of calcium to the plants? There has been a lot of rain this month. Does that contribute to the problem?
