The dreaded blossom rot
Well, my squash and cucumbers have blossom rot. Thus far, I’ve watered the soil weekly with a liquid blend of Fox Farm Bloom Booster, Bu’s tea, and dissolved Epsom salt. I’ve also added a single dose of dissolved Tums capsule in some Fox Farm Ocean Meal soil as a side dressing. This year I used store bought potting soil and mushroom compost but I believe the soil is pretty poor overall. One suspicious thing to note is that some cucumbers and squash are making it through while others fall and rot off the vine. Do you have any suggestions or resources to attend to the issue? Is it a lost hope?
