There are only a few things that will keep tomato plants from flowering and setting fruit. Immaturity tops the list, followed by lack of sufficient sunshine. Cool temperatures, or really hot temperatures can also keep tomato plants from producing. You didn't mention when you planted your tomatoes or what kinds you've planted. Tomatoes can take from 60-90 days to mature so yours might be too young to flower. I suspect your plants just need a little more time to mature before they can flower and set fruit.
