Ugly Tomatoes

My tomatoes are not doing well. The top photo shows what birds did to a big heirloom tomato while I was in London. The bottom photo is an example of an heirloom roma with blossom end rot (probably due to inconsistent watering).

None of the problems that I have had make me second guess our choice to not use any pesticides or herbicides. I haven't had problems with weeds or insects. The Texas heat and humidity are my biggest problems. I just need to find more suitable veggies to grow, and work on my timing. The birds can even tax the crop a little - that is OK.
