Eklectic I lived in Aylmer , toronto, and Ottawa for brief patches as a youth.
I have fond memories of those places.
You wouldn’t be down in that small mouth bass country ??

Yep, My daddy started up the Service Police school there in 1954.
I started my lifeguard training there and completed it.
I boxed under Wes Burnell there for two years.

I picked and hoed tobacco for pennies and spent the best months of my youth in that area.

Bob, I am now south of Ottawa, but have lived in Orleans, (Ottawa) at one point, as well as Kamloops, Vancouver, Richmond, Surrey and I was forgetting “Orchard Time” in Osoyoos B.C.
As well as Montreal and suburbs.
We were in Calgary and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just love the “old west”.

Well thank you very much Bunting.

Do you folks ever get talking about better plant care and the like?

I’m really interested in sustainable methods of home gardening.

OHHHHH, you are right … man that took me back ….

Did I tell ya we got our first tomato of the season??!!!!! You know I am new to this whole veggie thing. Anyway, a critter (or something) got to the bottom of this one tomato. Soooooo we couldn’t eat it, but it was sure pretty to look at (if you didn’t turn it over to check out the bottom – LOL!!). Sooooo now just gotta wait for the other tomatoes to redden up. I LOVE TOMATOES!!!! Eat em’ just like apples with a bit of salt!

Grandma T.
Check out the other Toms. too. they may be having a bout with blossom end rot.
You may be able to halt it with a calciium supplement.
Just guessing from the description and I am well know to be wrong.
