    blossom end rot may be from inconsistent watering or a calcium deficiency. i put about a table spoon of epsome salt around the plant and a hand full of garden lime as well. as for blight....go to the above link.

    put a banana peel in the hole when you plant the tomato plant (potassium) and crush clean egg shells around the soil (calcium). Do you also know that you should plant about 1/3 of the plant stem, after you remove the leaves from it. The buried stem wil produce additional roots to give you a sturdier tommato plant. For consistent watering you might want to use a self watering pot and just keep the well full - the plant will take the water it needs.
