You can, as often as you see necessary. A less expensive, and more long term solution will be to feed the plant, properly. Most vegetable garden fertilizers contain plenty of calcium and magnesium, cutting the need to add extra.
On the other hand, a 40 lb bag of Dolomitic Lime is less than 10 dollars. This will last several years for a small home garden.
