So I have a lovely little deck garden that is doing acceptionally well. Today I noticed a number of tomatoes are ripening and I am very excited to eat them. However I looked underneath because the bottom felt weird. It was almost concave on the bottom and sort of brownish in color? They are all like this. Nothing has eaten them it's weird. I don't know what it is any help would be greatly appreciated so on future tomatoes they don't get this

No they are not rotted out or sitting on the ground. It's just two of the 9 that are there. I actually looked it up. It's called blossom end rot because that is EXACTLY what they looked like. Looks like it's really common and they aren't getting enough calcium. Blossom-end Rot - Fast Facts - Weekend Gardener
