I have peppers and zucchini that don’t seem to me flowering much. They get enough sun and water, I believe. I have used Miracle Grow a couple of time this season. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah and it has been quite hot (90 and above) for the past three weeks. Prior to that it was cooler than normal, but pleasant. Have any ideas?

For the zucchini, it may be building up for the season. Squash typically have male flowers early that just fall off and get the female flowers later that stay on. You just may not be seeing those male flowers yet.
The heat could be affecting the peppers though.
Just in case, I would provide some phosphorus to the plants. They may have a bit too much nitrogen, which would keep them from flowering and the phosphorus will counter that.
