Tomato Plants Set Fruit Then Shrivel and Die

I'm having so much trouble growing tomatoes. Just when the plant is bearing lots of them, it seems to shrivel up like it's not getting enough water and the leaves turn yellow then black. The tomatoes are smaller in size, split open and rot on the vine.

This is the second year the same thing occurred. What is going on?

Get a package of Epsom salts at the local Walmart, drugstore, grocery, farm and home. It is great for the tomatoes. When they start blossoming they are short of the magnesium sulfate and this is the easy way to do it. Follow instructions on package or go to Google for gardening with Epsom salts. This ends the blossom end rot as well.
Also, when planting your tomatoes, cut away the bottom 10 inches of leaving when they get growing about 2 feet. This makes the upper healthy, gets air to the bottom and also keeps slugs/snails away.
