Fast Fresh Tomato Sauce

Anyone ever use milk to give tomatoes an emergency calcium infusion for blossom rot?

A couple of my Better Boy tomatoes show blossom rot, but not the blossoms. After talking with the organic farmer we buy our eggs and organic plants from at the farmers market saturday and they recommended adding old milk to the container at the root level for an emergency calcium infusion. I had about a 1/2 gal of sour raw milk, added 1/2 gal of water and poured the mixture on the soil  under the mat, some roots are under the mat at surface level and down into the root system. They also…

Smoothie Pops
