Yes, when you fertilize tomato plants with milk, they are getting calcium just like we do. Adding calcium to the soil helps prevent blossom end rot, which commonly occurs when the plants are lacking this micro-nutrient. Milk is also a natural fungicide, which can help prevent fungal issues. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/milk-fertilizer.htm
