But then… the blossom end rot came.
And so now, I say this with all due sincerity…
UP YOURS, YOU STUPID PIECE OF CRAP PLANT. I’D COME OUT THERE AND KICK YOUR DEAD ASS IF I WASN’T ALREADY AFRAID OF FALLING OFF THE FRIGGING FIRE ESCAPE AS IT IS.
I honestly have no idea what went wrong, but I can only assume something, somehow, went horribly wrong when I added eggshells to the soil to try and stave off further blossom end rot — which totally did not work, because that reddening tomato there STILL has a rotten end. (Oh, and the bean plant? Still merrily chugging along, putting out new blossoms and yielding a handful of beans here and there, happy as can be.)
So. What the hell happened?
