    Having just moved, we put in new raised beds; exactly as we did at our old house, cared for the tomato plants the same, fertilized the same, etc.; but I have blossom end rot terrible! 50 plants and every one of them seems to have it.

    I know it's suppose to be a calcium deficiency, but is there is there an emergency treatment to keep from loosing the whole crop? Still lots of blooms and tiny tomatoes developing.

    I've seen other posts about Calcium Nitrate (I think that was it) being used. But I have no idea where you'd get it.
