big tomato plants; not many tomatoes

I used Milorangite this spring. It's keeping the deer away, but I'm wondering if it was too much nitogen or wrong time to apply.

I don't think Milorganite would provide too much nitrogen if it was applied according to the label. Have you provided any other fertilizer since the application of Milorganite in the spring? You might want to liquid feed your plants with a fertilizer that is higher in phosphorus. Phosphorus is the element that promotes flower production and root development. Miracle-Gro makes a Tomato Plant Food that is high in phosphorus. This may stimulate the production of more flowers. If you are getting lots of flowers already and just no fruit, it may be a pollination issue.
