Before I go I have a question.  Yesterday I showed you my tomato plants at Wordless Wednesday.  What I didn't know was on the bottom of that nice red tomato was a black circle/a ring of rot.  ICK
Now it's the second one it happened too.  Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong or what it is or what I shouldn't be doing or what I can do to prevent this from happening???  PLEASE!

The only way I will eat cucumbers is after you have prepared them. I don't completely understand how I can love homemade pickles but HATE homegrown cucumbers! W.C.C.
