    Are they getting enough sunlight? If they are planted in a shady spot, they will be beautiful plants , but no tomatoe!

    Do they get enough sun? also, they drink a lot of water to make those juicy fruits.

    I was thinking the same...they need a minimum of 8 hours full sun.

    To help them get more water, plant them very deep. It helps them get more water in dryer times. I dig a hole when i plant them, then fill in the hole as the plant grows. 2/3rds gets planted. All along the stem the plants will grow roots.

    Also you shouldnt replant tomatoes in the same place as last year. You can also put a red plastic tablecloth (i get mine at dollar tree ) around the plants. I lay it down and just put holes in for my plants leaving some room for rain to get in. For some reason they like it and it will also help reduce water evaporation.

    Do you have plenty of bees. If not try a product called blossom set. It does what the bees would do.
