Default Heirloom tomato plant

This year, since dog Jackson is not digging so much, I decided to put in a tomato plant. I got an heirloom plant. So far, all I've seen is lots of blossoms but not one tomato! Have no idea why. Next year, romas.

Lack of bees? or whatever pollinates tomatos?

Could be. Could be weather, too.

No idea. Saw bees and one of the apple trees is doing ok, one had blossoms but no fruit. Weather hot and dry but I did water. Others tomatoes are doing well, so. . . ? Maybe heirloom plants need different care or something.

I'd check the care instructions, but usually, they don't. I've had excellent luck with heirloom plants... The biggest difference between heirloom and plants and the ones you normally pick up at the store, is that you can seed-save and replant year after year, which you frequently can't do with the genetically altered ones from the stores.
