    GREAT! My seeds have been started, and soon will go into the ground. This will be helpful, and i already have the powered milk on hand.

    This is a great tip!

    My green peppers were succumbing to blossom end rot (which I only recently figured out what it was) -- this will definitely help me to prevent this from happening again next year!

    Would this be good as a weekly application to sweeten tomatoes and forstall any calcium deficiencies? or would you only want to use it if blossom rot becomes a problem?

    blossom end rot is a kin to both tomatoes and bell peppers, save all your egg shells and take to the area u will dig up to put tomates and bell peppers, when you r tilling up the ground till the egg shells into the ground at the same time and this will calcium enrich the ground, also when planting change planting locations, one time tomatoes in this spot and the bell peppers in this spot and then the next time put cukes in this spot and tomatoes where cukies where and bell peppers where tomatoes were, u can egg shell the complete ground area and just move the spots around for planting, this is why farmers move soy beans and corn cause each plant uses different nutrients use this each year before you plant i keep egg shells in a plastic grocery bag and keep filling them up and we also use a baby tiller to weed the garden we just measure out how far to plant each plant to get around without touching the plants and can re calcium the ground and weed at same time

    What a great idea. I used a water/milk mixture to stop powdery mildew on rosemary last winter but had never thought to use it on blossom end rot. Thanks
