I have 6 tomato plants which are green, bushy & over 4 feet tall. They have had many flowers but I see absolutely no tomatoes! What's wrong?

A couple possibilities come to mind. Tomato pollen isn't viable much over 90 degrees, so fruits won't set. What have your temperatures been? Another possibility is that the flowers aren't being pollinated at all because of a lack of pollinators. Try gently tapping and shaking your plants in the early morning to see if you can get some fruit to set. Good luck!
