    When I plant my tomatoes I use both Epsom salts and lime in the hole, stir it up with a little dirt, then plant the tomato plant. I also plant them deep.

    I think some tomatoes are more likely to get BER than others. You might want to try a different variety of Roma; maybe a hybrid variety if you don't mind hybrids. You could purchase just a few plants and do your own experiment this year.
