Re: 2010 Tomato Roundup

My tomatoes here in Northern Virginia grew well this year with hardy plants, no sign of blight, and good yields. The problem I had was widespread "cracking" around the stem end of the tomatoes. I planted several varieties and all of them suffered from this unattactive problem. We had periods of drought followed by several days of drenching rain throughout the summer, so I attribute this cracking to these conditions. If any else has a better explanation, I would appreciate your comments.
