If you have ever grown tomatoes then you have probably experienced this scenario at least once in your gardening career: You are walking through your garden one morning when you see some plump tomatoes peeking out from under some leaves. You excitedly reach out to pick one until you notice a brown sunken spot that has overtaken the bottom of the fruit. Instead of joyously holding the fruits of your labor in your hands, you are now quickly drawing away, a look of horror and frustration on your face.
