blossom end rot

suddenly, all the tomatoes on 6 of my Roma plants have blossom end rot.  The first fruits do not, but everything else does.  These are the plants purchased from my local nursery.  Threw this many out for the Javelina yesterday and there are this many or more still on the plants.!!  Still have 4 clean plants, but that reduces my yield substantially!!!
