If your plants are flowering and you don't see any insect activity around the flowers you can transfer pollen with a small paint brush. Just visit each of the open flowers to help transfer pollen (do one plant at a time - cucumber pollen won't help the tomato plants and vice versa). Best wishes with your veggies.
