Q.Lots of flowers, no cucumbers
Over the last year, I planted cucumbers, squash, watermelon, cantaloupe, zucchini and tomatoes. I have yet to have very much off the plants. Lots of blossoms, but few produce. Besides bees, what am I missing that my plants need to be able to produce? I bought Blossom Set but haven’t seen much for results. They are planted in rich soil that came from an area that had livestock in the pasture over 10 years. It was old manure, not fresh. I put some organic bone meal in the garden before planting any plants. What does my garden need? It is very green and is watered about once a week depending on how hot the days are here in AZ. I have 2 peppers on out of 8 plants. The lettuce looks great. Please let me know what I can do to have some produce out of my garden. Thanks.

If you are getting flowers but no fruit, really the only issue is pollination. Because you live in a warm area, this can sometimes make pollinators a little lazier than they should be. You may need to hand pollinate to make up for it. These articles will help with and pollination:
