Nutrient lockout is a devastating thing. I always use a little lime in the soil. It cannot hurt has been my experience. Worst its going to do is be wasted. A PH of 7 is a 7 is a 7.

Have you all ever tested PH of our water? Makes ya wonder what the affect is on our bodies with tap water in the range or 7.5-8.5. At least that's what I have found often to be the case. CANNOT BE GOOD.

there is a liquid supplement call Cal-Mag that fixes most tomato problems.....they sell it here at the Pot growing store. They also sell some of the best liquid fertilizers I have seen. Apparently what is good for weed is also good for tomatos
