I'm having several tomatoes browning on the bottom when they are green. What could be the cause? Is there something I can do to prevent this? Thank you for your help.

The tomatoes have blossom end rot which is a common problem. It is a deficiency of calcium and moisture stress. This OSU publication, "Blossom End Rot in Tomatoes" will give you details on causes, prevention and remedies, which is mainly consistent watering.
Good luck correcting this problem.
