Healthy Pepper Plants but No Fruit
I live in Minnesota. I transplanted red pepper plants that I had started indoors the end of May. The plants are 2-3 feet tall but have very few fruit and flowers forming. The plants look so healthy that I cannot understand why I do not have any peppers. The few that are there are still green and very small. Could it be something missing in the soil? I figured we have had a pretty warm, humid summer and record rainfall. Frustrated on this. I am not ready to give up next summer, so could use some suggestions.

Add more phosphorus to the soil. Your soil is probably lacking this and peppers need this to flower. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
