I am very new to growing a garden as a matter of fact this is the frist time I have done it. So far everything is doing well. But I do have a few questions I hope someone can help me with.
1- why are my tomatos geting blooms but no fruit,the blooms stay for a while then die and fall off.(these are the frist blooms) My plants are very green and bushy. I was just wondering if this is normal ?

2-Can I use some old Prenatal vitamins on my pea,suash,okra,cucumber,sweet bell pepper,and tomato plants ?
At this time I am useing Miracle Grow on them once a week like the directions say.

Thank you for any and all help in this matter

Your question would have been more appropriate on the Vegetable Growing Forum, but I will answer it here.

Tomato blossoms will not pollinate and are apt to drop at daytime temperatures above 85 degrees F or so. I notice you are in Florida.

I think it is OK to apply vitamins. Certain vitamins are beneficial to plants,

Apply the solution of Vitamin-D tablets with Ca in it.
