This has been a difficult growing season for gardeners. If you are getting flowers with no fruit, this is typically a pollination issue. These articles may help:

If you are not seeing any flowers, then it is likely due to a lack of phosphorus in the soil. This can be remedied by using a phosphorus rich fertilizer or adding bone meal to the soil around your plants.
