|Early in moring give each cluster of flowers a little flick with your finger. Thats it.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|What USDA zone are you in?
Do you grow any flowering plants that attract pollinators?
When you dance with nature, try not to step on her toes.

|Concur with Phillip.some folks give the whole plant a shake, but a flick of the blossom cluster is all thats necessary. tomatoes are self pollinating.|

|Welcome to NGA, @Miamiamjm .
Just guessing from your user name -- but if you are in Miami maybe it is already hot enough to prevent the flowers from setting fruit? Tomato plants do tend to shut down in very hot weather.
