tomatoes are not very nice this summer

My tomatoes are not very nice so far this summer.. MAny have hard shoulders with white areas inside and others are doing a lot of splitting.
Not sure if it's weather or soil or maybe both. Hope to get it figured out before next season.
Anybody else having a problem? Suggestions?

Splitting is probably the rain. Mine aren't pretty either but I have stink bugs.

Seems like it is always something with gardens, especially tomatoes. I think the problem is probably weather related. My entire garden is beginning to die and I am letting it! I am tired of watering almost daily.

Let's hope 2014 is a better year.

I asked at the farmers market and it seems only folks with regular irrigation have nice looking tomatoes. We have lots, they just don't look good. I cut off the bad parts and still have enough.
Yes, seems like it is always something in the gardens. The beans peppers and eggplants have been great so I guess I better not complain.
