Tomatoes Plants - Blooming but no tomatoes? Thump 'em!
You might try mulching heavy or find some way to keep them cooler. Tomato pollen won't work right over about 92 degrees so you get no tomatoes. If you want a real good crop, just go out and occasionally "thump" the plants when they are blooming. Not hard, just enough to make the pollen dislodge. (Maybe "tapping" is a better word :) When I do this, the tomatoes line up like grapes in a bunch.
