Excessive heat (over 90F) can keep tomato plants from flowering. Over fertilizing can result in lots of lush, green growth but at the expense of blossoms. At this point just withhold fertilizer and your plants will settle down and begin to flower. Even with the heat they will reach a point in their maturity where they will set flowers. Just be patient with them and they will reward you with lots of tasty tomatoes.
