I have several tomatoes with spots near the stem that are rotting while they are just starting to turn red. Anyone have this happen before? It might just be that my 6, 4 and 1 1/2 year olds are just "feeling" them and bruising them on the vine. They know they get in major trouble if they pick them. But I was wondering if this a disease or blight or bug or SOMETHING!

I haven't had this happen, but it sounds a little like what I have read about blossom end rot. Type in blossom end rot in the search engine, and it should lead you to some information. Also, I've noticed different threads addressing blossom end rot, particularly in the Problems with Fruits and Vegetables forum. You might even want to repost your question there. There is all kinds of good information posted in old threads. They are worth checking out.
