Q.Should I Switch To A Fertilizer That Is Designed More For Fruit Setting This Time Of The Year?
I have been using the soluble miracle grow 24-8-16 for my tomatoes, green peppers, and cucumbers. I live in northern michigan zone 4a. Should I switch to a different fertilizer to facilitate more fruit sets at this time of the year. I have a fabric ground covering to block weed growth. A soluble fertilizer would be preferable.

Yes. You will find, using that high of a nitrogen content, that your plants will fail to set fruit. I would avoid fertilizers with much nitrogen while you intend to set fruit.
