Im guessing you mean Blossom End Rot

I havnt had any of that but I do get about 10% splitting from the stem base around the fruit a bit

Im going with growing too fast for the splitting

If your getting blossom end rot your short on calcium

Yes too hot can trigger lack of calcium uptake from messing with transpiration, have you got your system shaded

All the books / information written about growing in Mediterranean climates are not really applicable to Australian conditions when the extreme days turn up its worse

Another possibility if your nitrate is off the chart it could be messing with calcium uptake (competition between fruits and plant growth)

Thanks for that.nitrates are at 40 ppm and they have no shade getting full arvo sun and did look very dehydrated over the hot period.sounds like that's the cause. I might have to look into some shade cloth to get some shade on them.

Slugs are certainly persistent

Had a cleanout of slugs in a growbed at the end of October including a 24hr deep flood

Tidy up and new plants to go in so brought the water up with my deep flood extension and caught 11 slugs

Had an invasion of caterpillars caught a lot and sprayed with Dipel , once the caterpillars go brown they are a lot easier to see , lots of little ones dead that were almost impossible to find in the jungle .

No tomatoes at the moment a month of too hot weather caused that (flowers fail)

Picking Suyo and Apple cucs

Sweet yellow chillis

Planted some mid and late season tomatoes so should have some later on

Have a lot of frozen tomatoes that I thought would get fed to the chooks but they will get used now.

Corn didn't do any good (only grown one good crop in AP since I started) guessing probably not enough Phosphorous

But they are good for burning up nitrate .

Weather has been much better cool nights and day temps in the mid 30s celcius

Fish are smashing their feed . :D :fish: :fish: :fish:
