Re: homeowner

Are you getting enough sunlight? Are you indoors or outdoors?

Re: tomato

Plants are outdoors, getting plenty of sunlight. Grew tomatoes in a spot about 10 feet from the current location, last year.
Checked today, not one tomatoes on either plant.

Re: homeowner

What are the normal daytime high temperatures where you live? If it's real hot all the of the time, pollen becomes sterile and your flowers won't pollinate. Are you growing big tomatoes like Beefsteaks, or a smaller variety like cherries? Big ones always take longer to produce, and combined with possible hot weather, you just might be in a slow period right now.

Re: homeowner

We live in Folsom, Ca. The daytime temps. are always 90-100 degrees. I am growing (or trying) to grow big tomatoes, beefsteaks.
Could be its too hot for the flowers to pollinate, or they're just slow to produce fruit. Thank you so much for the advise.

Re: homeowner

I would use try to pollinate them with a ear tip It sounds like you have lost your bees or somthing that does that waork

Re: homeowner

use an electric tooth brush and touch each flower let it vibrate the flower for a few seconds you should see yellow pollen from the flower come of.
