Tomato plants

this year I had beautiful herbs, but my tomato plants had issues. the blossems rotted, as did all my neighbors. I am in zone 9. Does anyone have an idea on what happened?

I live in zone 9 and have to plant in tubs beacause i live in a State Park and the racoons are busy.
This year my herbs did beautiful, but the tomatoes blossemed, then they turned brown abd rotted. I even tried the topsy turvey and the same thing happened. Anyone know what the ans to this is? i would love to grow instead of buy tomatoes, and cukes too, the cukes did not make it either
