Chances are, it is the heat. Most varieties have difficulty setting fruit in hot temps. The pollen clumps and does not fertilize the flower.

You should get some tomatoes when it cools down some, and there are heat resistant varieties that do tend to set fruits better than others. Many TX gardeners have a Spring crop and a Fall crop and leave the heat of the summer as time to planning their gardens.
