Default no tomatoes

My tomato plants are 6', never had them that large before BUT I have
very few tomatoes or flowers. What gives?

Too much fertilizer may cause this phenomenon.

Thanks, I have been giving them miracle grow every two weeks, I'll cut
that in half and give them half the amount every two weeks

I concur Daniel. Back home as a kid we had a family garden
and did the same thing. Tomato plants the size of pine trees
but no fruit.

FWIW- I strategically fertilize now. First, as young
plantings, then right after the first flowers set and then
after the first harvest and the second set of flowers finish.

Most likely too much fertilizer too soon. I fertilize when I plant and
don't apply anymore until it is blooming and some have set so you have
fruit.

I made the mistake with okra one year and the stuff was 6 feet before I
got the first bloom. We had to bend it over to pick it.
