Although you are really giving your plant a treat with all that Miracle Gro, you may be defeating yourself in the long run. While tomato plants are considered heavy feeders, too much nitrogen will result in lots of green growth but at the expense of flowering and fruit. Hold off on the fertilizer applications, but keep the soil watered well. When the weather is right (below 90F), the plant will develop flowers and fruits. Enjoy!
