My tomato plants are growing big and full (to my surprise) but there is yet to be a single tomato. My neighbor planted a week after me and already has a few small tomatoes starting. However, she does not have very big plants with many leaves. Do I just need to pluck off a lot of the leaves/branches so the plant can use it's energy to produce fruit and not more leaves?
Also, my yellow squash aren't growing more than a few inches. I have a lot of blossoms (mostly male, but some female). The fruit gets up to several inches long, stays that way for several days to a week, and then falls off. Does this mean they need more pollination? I don't quite understand how you pollinate the female with the male blossom.
And my sweet pepper plants aren't doing anything except surviving. They've barely grown larger than when I bought the plant in the store (over a month or so ago).
