Over Watering Tomatoes?

I think my Tomato plants are suffering from blossom end rot, how can I fix this? I'm afraid I've been watering too much, every morning until the soil looks wet. I don't want to cut back too much and shock the plants, what do I do?

I have a greenhouse filled with tomatoes and they all had blossom rot. You have to add a calcium supplement. You can get time released calcium at most greenhouse stores (not home depot or lowes) It takes awhile to see results and you'll have to throw out the ones that are already starting to rot. But good news its not overwatering! Hope this helps!

Save your money honey, and use egg shells! Also, blossom end rot is from not watering consistently. Overwatering results in the fruit splitting, tomatoes are heavy feeders and need water daily.

Don't let the soil dry out completely. Ever since I put my tomatoes on a drip irrigation with a timer, I have not had problems with blossom end rot. The tomatoes are still good, just cut the bad end off.
