: My tomato plants are about 5 ft tall now and are not producing fruit. I'm getting some flowers, but no tomatoes. The stalks are very thick and strong. Can anyone please help me!?!?!?

It sounds like you are giving them too much fertilizer? How ofetn are you fertilizing, and if it's Miracle grow, throw it away. I'm sure you are using miracle grow, what that does is grow you very big pretty "bushes". Too much fertilizer is no good for plants. I fertilze in the fall, a little in the spring, and a side dressing mid summer. I use manure tea 10 days after plant out two weeks later and again when I see tomato's, thats it. Now I wont even manure tea anymore since I found calcium Nitrate works better.
